Weekend Reading List: Grunt

Here at Casa Feathers n Beak, reading is a flock-wide tradition.

While some of us like to focus on the words on the page, while others of us prefer to focus on the crispiness of those pages, it is safe to say no book entering this household lacks for attention.

So Pearl thought it would be a great idea to combine his literary knowledge with his mommy’s typing skills to offer a “book o’ the week” review – just in time for your weekend reading list!

This week, the book is Grunt: the curious science of humans at war” by Mary Roach.

Pearl, examine the title while gathering his expert ideas for how to make it more compelling.

Pearl’s review: First of all, the title would have been much more compelling if she had used the word “Chirp.” But for beings who can’t just use “cuteness” to win at things, I can see how this book might be useful. For more on how useful cuteness can be, I wholeheartedly recommend this book!


His mommy’s review: I love Mary Roach’s writing. I am well on my way to reading everything she’s ever written. She just has a way of simplifying scientific things (I sure wish my high school biology teachers had had that gift). Plus, she’s funny!

Happy reading!

With love (& feathers),

Shannon & Pearl
