Given to me by a friend who was having a clear out - I like Toksvig as a comedienne, but haven't read anything by her - could be interesting.

Not for me!

I like Sandi Toksvig as a presenter and comedian - her sense of humour is similar to my own. But somehow I just couldn't find that here. I read 6 chapters and, considering it was supposed to be set in a zoo, the story had barely visited it. In fact, after two descriptions of fairly horrific, casual animal suffering (one involving drowning live spiders and the other the death of an elderly dog), I kind of lost any want to read this further.

I hope it can find a more appreciative audience out in the wild world.
