This month’s book is Enslaved by Ducks by Bob Tarte.
It started with a Rabbit named Binky…
Writer Bob Tarte and his wife Linda move to a house in rural Michigan. Linda talks Bob into getting a rabbit. Before long the couple acquires more rabbits. And geese. And turkeys. And cats. And parrots. And doves. And a starling. And a canary. And budgies. And of course, ducks.
Cooper loved this book about the Tartes, and their ever increasing animal family. She found it to be very funny and sweet, and as with life with animals goes, sad (warning, have some Kleenex handy). Though the title refers to ducks, Cooper thought the real stars of the book were budgies Farley, Rossy, Reggie and Sophie.
She highly recommends this charming book and is looking forward to reading the author’s next book, Fowl Weather.
