aaa index (1)This is a delightful read; written by scientist and well-published author Sy Montgomery, How to Be a Good Creature affords glimpses into her life, divided among her various relationships with different remarkable animals. They range from border collies to animal personalities she encountered during her numerous expeditions to many parts of the world. For example, Clarabelle, the pink-toed tarantula Sy met in French Guiana, and the three emus she happened upon in Australia, are only a few who supplied Sy with lessons in how to be a better “creature”.  I heartily recommend this unusual book: Montgomery’s plain writing is so refreshing, her optimism is very uplifting and the illustrations by Rebecca Green are adorable. Not to mention it’s a quick read for those who are under time constraints on their reading…
