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 share more about books we both love – just in time for your weekend reading list!
This week, the book is “Journey of the Pink Dolphins“ by Sy Montgomery.
Pearl’s review: Well, if the cover beings were grey I think the cover art would look better. Although the shiny reflective cover is a nice crinkly touch. Of course you don’t need “extras” like those when you get the cover art right, like with this great book!
His mommy’s review: I have definitely been on a nature reading roll recently…like for the last several years. But I have to say, Sy Montgomery’s tolerance for mosquitos borders on the miraculous. But it is for a great cause – in this book, she ventures into the Amazon and brings back out a picture of a way of life that is at once deeply reverent of nature and animals and at the same time greedily self-serving. While the book revolves around the dolphins, there are many other supporting non-human cast members to meet and learn about.
With love (& feathers),
Shannon & Pearl

We are book-lovers at our home, too, but there are assasins at every turn. No book is safe when our cockatoo, African grey, or standard poodle have them in their capable maws. We had to bury (recycle) another hapless victim yesterday when River, the poodle, got over-zealous with her prey while I was in the shower and unable to intervene.
Yup-that sounds about right. If the prey shows even the teensiest inkling of fear (or crispiness) it’s a goner for sure.
