What was school like 65 million years ago? Do bees have intimations of immortality? Do frogs respond well to psychoanalysis? Why was the nightingale in Keats’ garden regarded by his fellow creatures as a disgraceful reprobate? Meet Magnanimouse and his laboratory cagemate Alphonse, Doctor Spineswine the prickly philosopher, Twenty-First Century Fox, Formby the lion of two worlds and a whole supporting cast of friends from the animal kingdom (or somewhere not too far removed from it). In twelve tales with settings ranging from the late Cretaceous to the present day, they reveal the answers to these and other pressing questions of contemporary zoology.

    A great read from a writer with an incredible imagination. Well written with a wonderful expression of language and ideas. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get lost in the minds of animals and who would like an insight into the world from their point of view.

    "Peter Burt's Fables" This collection of linked short stories is an extraordinary piece of work packed with originality, combining depth and humour in equal measure. Burt's anthropomorphic anti-heroes leap off the page and range from the cantankerous porcupine Dr Spineswine through to "the professor", a performing circus elephant suffering from memory loss. These bittersweat fables tantalise with an ingenuity reminiscent of Perec or Calvino. Highly recommended.
