    Here is a first novel like no other: a spellbinding tale that both creates its own fully realized world perspective and provides an incisive look at the ways that humans and animals resemble each other. A group of elegant monster dogs in top hats, tails, and bustle skirts become instant celebrities when they come to New York in 2008.

A tail for all ages

by Pete946 on May 6, 2010

This unique story, the author's first outing, was a delightful read. I whipped through it in two days.

I'm quite certain we'll be hearing and reading more from the pen of Kirsten Bakis.
