Whimsical is the kindest thing I can say about this book. The author has an MFA in creative non-fiction. I was expecting essays with a naturalist perspective. Instead, I saw pieces in which animals and plant life were anthropomorphized to a degree that I found annoying. One comment on the back cover likened this writing to Lewis Carroll. There are definitely made-up words and discombobulated sentences and paragraphs. The overall effect on me is that I don't want to finish the book, nor do I want to read anything else by Amy Leach.
