Will Cuppy (1884 - 1949) fik denne bog publiceret i 1949, hvilket jo er et stykke tid siden. Den her bog er sat med en digitaliseret udgave af Caledonia, en skrifttype, der er fra 1941. Men jeg synes både skrifttypen og humoren er lidt spinkel i støbningen. Forfatteren har taget en række dyr og skrevet lidt om dem på en humoristisk måde. Men det er der jo både før og siden andre, der har gjort. Fx "Never buy dice from a wombat".

Translating humour is difficult. This book is supposed to be funny. The German translation does not seem to be funny at all. Either I have lost my sense of humour or Lutz-Werner Wolff has not succeeded in translating the humour of this book. I won't give a rating because the English may well be funny.
