Biographies: This book offers short introductions to famous people, including artists, writers, and musicians, and highlights their favorite (and sometimes unusual) pets.
Illustrations: In addition to the short biographical texts, the book includes charming illustrations of the artists along with their companion animals.
Animals: A variety of animals have been inspiring people since the first cave paintings of deer and bison—and pet cats, dogs, birds, and others have continued to aid creativity with their beauty, humour, companionship, and cuteness.
Famous artists and their pets: The book features the likes of Mozart, who composed his brilliant work with a friendly little starling. Dalí and Babou the Ocelot were a couple of adorable buddies, and Dorothy Parker had a baby alligator swimming in her bathtub.
Fascinating stories: This book teaches children about about some of the greatest creative and artistic minds of history and the incredible works their relationships to animals have inspired.
Children and animals: Animals play important roles in all our lives, and children especially have a natural affinity for animals.
“…[Gallo’s] petcentric overviews of each human subject’s life and achievements are generally both spot-on and rich in fascinating anecdotes.” —Kirkus Starred Review
