'Diana Hartog writes as if she has been prying open a nest of animal dreams —Â? all the beasts in this bestiary have been caught without their shells on. The writing is sly, charming, wicked and funny. Every once in a while, Hartog catches you off guard by injecting an element of pain that leaves you breathless. Stung. This book should not be read while bathing in honey. Read first. Bathe second. The order is imperative. Polite to Bees will tell you why.' Â?– Timothy Findley

'With grace, compassion, humour, with a deft imagination and exquisite language, Diana Hartog has made a lovely contribution in one of the most delightful literary genres that exists. This bestiary is the work of a master sorceress, and the animals she's conjured have the capacity to teach us all a lesson or two about the ways of humanity.' Â?– Bradford Morrow

'Marvellous tact informs these animations, which arise from ournatures and compose wild pedagogies of the imagination.' –Â? Sharon Thesen

Diana Hartog has published four collections of poetry: Ink Monkey (Brick, 2006); Polite to Bees (Coach House, 1992), nominated for the BC Book Prize; Candy from Strangers (1986), winner of the BC Book Prize; and Matinee Light (1983), winner of the Gerald Lampert Award. She has also written a memoir, No Hippies Allowed (1994) and a novel The Photographer’s Sweethearts (1996). Her short fiction has been shortlisted for the Journey Prize. She lives in New Denver, BC and winters in California.
