Dr. Ann Schiebert has written her first young adult novel, not as a psychologist, but as a human who has studied all types of non-humans for years. For Ann, there are no kinder, more loving teachers we humans could ever have than those with fur, feathers, and scales that we choose to bring into our homes to love and to love us.
