4.0 out of 5 stars Wildlife Lovers (and a Hater), April 8, 2012
By 
This review is from: Fauna (Paperback)
This book is a simple pleasure for anyone interested in the wildlife featured in the book. This is not a book with talking animals although the human characters in the book spent lots of time reading books such as Watership Down and The Jungle Book, and one of the characters is named after an otter.

This is a book about the real wildlife of a city and people for whom they are important. Some of the people try to help by rescuing injured birds, rehabbing a red-tailed hawk and orphan raccoons (I've done the latter myself so I especially enjoyed the pages mentioning their noise and bottle-feeding them). One of the characters cares about a mouse living in her apartment, and ironically just after I started this review, I had to stop writing to look for one which ran across my dorm room.

On the other side is a character who wants to eliminate coyotes, and things can get a bit gruesome in his portion of the story.

The human aspect of the story involves the small group of animal lovers gradually getting to know each other and bonding as a small alternative family/community. This is not timeless literature, but a fine story of compassion.
