I received a free ebook review copy from the publisher through NetGalley.
The book has a chapter/story format with different animals separated into different categories. There are categories for dogs and cats of course, but also for farm animals, birds, rodents (and rabbits), reptiles and fish and a couple of stories about exotic animals (foxes) and a final weirdly endearing chapter about flea circuses of the Victorian era (odd and silly in about equal measures).
The book is lavishly illustrated with beautiful paintings and illustrations from the period. The stories themselves are well written and (mostly) historically sound, and when there are discrepancies, they're clearly noted. The book also includes a useful index and a sources list as well as a bibliography which provides a good resource list for further reading.
I enjoyed this book a lot and found the author's informal style both accessible and fun to read.
