Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris
Publish Date: October 5, 2010
If animals were more like us, if mice kept pets and toads could cuss, if dogs had wives and chipmunks dated, sheep sat still and meditated, then in the forest, field, and dairy you might find this bestiary, read by storks, by rats and kitties, skimmed by cows with milk-stained titties. "I found the book to be most droll," might quip the bear, the owl, the mole, Others, though, would be more coarse. "Bull," could say the pig and horse. As to the scribe, they'd quote the hen: "Trust me, he's no La Fontaine."

Leave a comment explaining your favorite animal story (don't forget to leave me your email so I can contact you if you win!)
My favorite animal story is the Tortoise and the Hare because it teaches so many great lessons about the need to be humble and not counting people out.
I also love the book Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo. I think it's my favorite dog book of all time because it's one of the few dog books that won't make you cry at the end!
