Abstract:

Solomon, the legend goes, had a magic ring which enabled him to speak to the animals in their own language. A delightful treasury of observations and insights into the lives of all sorts of creatures, from jackdaws and water-shrews to dogs, cats and even wolves.

"It is one of the best and most penetrating non-technical books about animals and animal nature that has ever been written ... every sensitive reader will agree that the book is a work of humanity, wisdom and balance as well as of delightful humour."--W H Thorpe--Annotation Published July 2017.
