A new collection of essays on the animal kingdom tells wondrous tales of the natural world
Before I began reading Janaki Lenin’s delightful collection of essays, Every Creature Has A Story, I didn’t know that spiders salivate during sex. I didn’t know that chimpanzees can mourn. And I certainly didn’t know that as far as birds are concerned, good singers also make great fathers. Well, I will hold up my dorsal fin and say that before reading this book, I didn’t know much about anything regarding the animal kingdom at all.
