A book I loathed to begin and then seemed to grow longer as I read caught ahold of a feeling which I connected with. I think it was the insults of a jaunty rooster to a cursed dog with an extremly large nose. The dog was seen as a nusance, a pest, but if not for the intiguing portrale of Mundo Cani Dog who complains he is 'marooned' to the master of the universe, the story would collapse into shambles. He is hero who is spat on. The bittersweet blessing God has betowed upon him enables the dog to save the world. And the speech of John Wesley Weasle and his tenacity in battle, along with his hatred for his brethren, the mad house of otters spins on a dousing of comedy. But with this sorrow comes, for the roosters wife, and their children in danger. Tick Tock and his army of ants resemble a miniature military, guarding over the chicks. And may I add, my favorite characters are the turkeys, who so comically say, "Galoot, galoot, Rutabega Rooster!" This book which I hated to start became the book I also hated to stop. It's a fantasticaly momentous twist on Good and Evil won me over and it became the best book I've ever read.
