In which I read a book and then tell you a bit about it.

Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk, by David Sedaris
I could hear David Sedaris' voice reading these stories in my head. When I first heard his new book was about animals, I was worried I wouldn't like it. As soon as I started reading it though, those fears disappeared. How could I not like David Sedaris? He's great. These are animal fables, darkly humorous tales of morality. The accompanying illustrations, by a well-known children's book creator, are just as surprisingly macabre. Good times.
