"A dog is a dog, unless it's a...CAT!" And that cat is a cat unless it's a...SQUID! And so on, until...
...Nah, I'm not going to tell you! You have to read it to find out! Suffice it to say that this is a book with a surprise every couple of pages. (That squid came at me from out of the blue!) It's a book about the essential nature of well-known animals, about disguises, and about surprises. I can imagine this book making Franki's Million Times list, or Bill's Picks From the Pit.
