J. D. BiersdorferThere's not a lot of actual chatter back and forth between Hodgman and the nonhuman inhabitants of her Doctor Dolittle-like domicile, but through careful observation she's able to create a distinct personality for most of her pets, and Eugene Yelchin's black-and-white illustrations add a note of whimsy. Using a sassy, almost conspiratorial tone ("Carrying a rat on your shoulder is especially fun because it bothers other people"), Hodgman is very straightforward about life with so many dependents from the wild kingdom. It's the good, the bad and the messy in this book.
