There was a clumsy flapping of wings, a tremendous swelling of the bird’s wattle and an undignified getting up, as if it were a floored boxer doing his best to beat the count of ten.
Two mismatched animals meet and the result is a hilarious tale of how one got the better of the other. A photographer takes pictures of animals in the wild and writes about the hidden and mysterious world of the jungle. A tiger, used to its habitat, has to keep running from the humans who take up his home, till he has no more place for escape.
Filled with descriptions of animals both in the wild and at home, of jungles and of the people who wander the forests in search of animals, this collection contains stories that are exhilarating and thought-provoking.
