Musings of a Book Addict

Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Wicked Bestiary

Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary - David Sedaris, Ian Falconer Wow, Mr. Sedaris. Really? I guess if we look at this publication as a therapeutic exercise for you to vent your hatred of the human race, you did a good job. But to categorize it as one of your wonderfully written, hysterical books that gently but truthfully ribs the weird and wonderful aspects of the human race? Nope - not even close. Just because you use animals instead of people, doesn't make it less hateful or more funny. It makes it and you very, very sad. What a huge disappointment.
