  • The cast of characters in this compilation is a menagerie of animals... cats, dogs, birds, even a dragon... and their owners. These stories look at the myriad of experiences, and adventures, that pet ownership can bring. Join a medieval scholar who discovers that not all mythical creatures are extinct, stalk the night with the Cat of Frankenstein, kick that caffeine habit with a class of kindergartners, dance along with a divorcee and her dog, and more!
