The Tarantula in My Purse and 172 Other Wild Pets by Jean Craighead George
Book description from Amazon.com...Imagine living with a skunk in your closet, a bat in your refrigerator, and a tarantula in your purse! In this hilarious autobiographical account, Newbery Medal–winning author and acclaimed naturalist Jean Craighead George describes her adventures in a house full of wildlife enthusiasts—and the amazing animals themselves.
My twenty-five cents...Loved this book! It is short stories about some of the different kinds of animals the author had as she raised three children (and 173 wild pets)!! If you are an animal lover I think you will enjoy these short stories. Who knows, you might even want to adopt a new kind of pet??!
