Victorians loved their pets! And in Victorian days, a "pet" didn't necesarily mean just a cat or a dog, or even a bird. In this marvelous collection of true stories of Victorian pets, you'll meet such fascinating animal companions as:
  • Mungo the curious mongoose
  • Asnapper, a brown owl
  • Jack, the railway dog
  • A jealous robin
  • Anchor, a stag-beetle
  • Pepper, the "catting" dog
  • A "fairy" who lived in a soap dish
  • Some very clever rats
  • A friendly pig
  • ...and many others!
Meet Victorian working dogs, performing animals, and beloved pets of every description. Get to know some curious animal friends - including a kangaroo raised by dogs and a bantam whose best friend is a cat! You'll also encounter tales of a host of other Victorian critters, from elephants to mice!

If you love animals, you'll love this collection of Victorian animal tales, gathered from Victorian magazines and never before anthologized. So grab a cup of tea, pet the dog, curl up with the cat - and prepare for a chuckle!
