NPR Driveway Moments All about Animals: Radio Stories That Won't Let You Go Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stories from the National Public Radio archives celebrate our relationship with our furry, feathered, and sometimes scaly friends.

What’s a "driveway moment"? It's when you're so captivated by a story you're hearing on NPR that you stay in your car to hear it to the end—even if you're sitting in your driveway with the motor running. For years, listeners have written to NPR to describe such moments. Now animal lovers especially will want to make sure their tanks are full.

Meet a dog who's addicted to toads, a chatty parrot who tells the truth, the Stupid Pet Tricks coordinator for the Late Show with David Letterman, and a professional dog walker whose day features 14 canines and a lot of fresh air. Learn about a dog's life in Vietnam (where dog meat is a delicacy) and the heartrending search for lost pets following Hurricane Katrina. Visit a retirement community for thoroughbred racehorses and the Wait Wait petting zoo, where cows moo with British accents and mice dislike cheese. Bid farewell to a cat named Miss Pudding and welcome three orphaned hummingbirds home.

Heard on All Things Considered, Morning Edition, Talk of the Nation, and Wait Wait…Don't Tell Me!, hosted by Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep, these stories will make you laugh out loud and shed a tear or two.
