I was a little worried when I ordered the book that the author might turn out to be a little too eccentric... you know, a strange "squirrel lady," but she's not at all like that. She's a university professor and a surprisingly good writer who just loves animals and is fearless enough to invite them into her home.
My favorite part was the very funny section where the author takes one of the squirrels to the dentist because of a problem with his lower front teeth.
