Barks and Purrs (Illustrated Edition) (Dodo Press): By  The French Writer Colette Who Published Around Fifty Novels In Total, Many With Autobiographical Elements. - Colette An utterly cheerful and amusing narration of various antics and experiences of TOBY- the dog and KIKI-the demure cat. Colette shrewdly depicts the several shades of traits, revealing the gullible and devoted Toby and the sly and narcissistic Kiki, whilst revealing the underlying human persona in these animals. It may sound like an elementary school read; even so it is worth a glimpse for the fineness of Colette’s inimitable flair to convey complex elements through simplistic tenderness of animal emotions.
