KIRKUS REVIEW

The Karigs, Walter, his wife- Eleanor, his daughters- Patricia and Keating, and Patty's children- Alexis and Robin take turns in telling entertainingly, fondly but never fatuously about the many different animals in their household. These have included some fifteen dogs, ducks, horses, goats, skinks, salamanders, crawfish, canaries and an Australian budgergah (lovebird); rabbits- a paying venture which paid out- not in; a skunk; a donkey; a pig who craved companionship; crickets, and their favorite Siamese cats. A friendly family solidarity here, a genuine feeling and respect for their pets- qualified by their limitations, and some advice makes this an appealing account.
