Strays and Relations
Strays and Relations follows the story of Dizzy, whose search for her birth parents is sad, humorous, and in parts bizarre.
Dizzy Greenfield manages sensitive subject matter with engaging wit and sharply-observed dialogue, and includes vivid descriptions of some rather unusual animals and people.
This book will appeal to all readers - but especially to those who have encountered a recycled animal or family. Recommended.
