Whilst this is definitely a magazine for lovers of animals, it probably isn't for lovers of fine literature. Though many of the articles are interesting and quite well written, few of the so-called haiku are correctly labelled thus and many of the pieces, especially the poetry, are what I would term "twee".
Nonetheless it contains some gems such as Herbert Williams' set of poems about a hawk
He brought us trophiesAlso excellent are Loraine Stayer's story GRANDMOTHER TO A DUCK and Dr. Adolf P Shvedchikov's chilling COME, WE'VE FOUND YOUR LOST CAT.
with pride, put
at our feet
and could not understand our horror.
