      Just will tie up the cats and read to them. I think they will respond to Brodski poetry. Or may be French dictionary. They look like they are eager to listen. both turned away and have amasing vacant look on their faces. Anna

      I love getting our books from your "shop". Best service and price, even if it's half way across the world. A wonderful shopping experience. My husband, 3 year old son and I would love to own and experience The New Naturalist Library. It will be a wonderful addition to our reading list.
