McGuffy Ann, February 8, 2010 (view all comments by McGuffy Ann)
"Enslaved By Ducks" immediately caught my attention with it's title. However,
Bob Tarte draws you in from the first page and keeps you laughing and crying
throughout the entire book. His tales (tails) are both funny and heartwarming.
Sometimes you will find yourself laughing and crying, at the same time.Bob Tarte
and his pets remind us to live life to the fullest, and why we should,as well.

Reading his books are like listening to a friend.Be sure to read the sequel,
"Fowl Weather", too!

"Review" by , "Tarte has an ordinary-Joe voice that makes each chapter a true pleasure, while revealing a sophisticated vision of animals and their relationship to humans."
"Review" by , "[W]holly disarming....'Why didn't anyone warn me?' Tarte asks about the consequences of sharing a home with animals. It's a good thing they didn't, or we might not have had this affecting debut."
"Review" by , "Part Gerald Durrell and part Bill Bryson, this heartwarming book will find many readers among Rascal and That Quail, Robert devotees."
"Review" by , "[A] hilarious debut....Tarte rebels against his urban instincts and learns to love his personal zoo. After reading this delightfully punchy account, you may never look at Fido the same way again. (Grade: B+)"
"Review" by , "This light and witty diversion is highly recommended for those who appreciate the value of good humor and a positive outlook on life."
"Review" by , "Potential pet owners who think that caring for one or two animals would be a walk in the park will find this book extremely useful reading....Other readers will chuckle at the situations presented, and pet owners will no doubt identify with them."
"Review" by , "A laugh-out-loud chronicle of what it means to bring animals — a blind turkey, an irascible rabbit, a lovesick dove — into your heart and home and make them part of the fabric of your life."
"Synopsis" by , A laugh-out-loud chronicle of what it means to bring animals of all shapes and sizes into your heart and home.
"Synopsis" by , When Bob Tarte bought a house in rural Michigan, he was counting on a tranquil haven. Then Bob married Linda. She wanted a rabbit, which seemed, at the time, innocuous enough. But that was just the beginning. Wouldn't a parrot be cute? Linda said. Bob suddenly found himself constructing pens, buying feed, clearing duck waste, spoonfeeding at mealtime. One day he realized he'd become a servant to a relentlessly demanding family, and a motley crew it was. Writing as someone who's been ambushed by the way in which animals, even cranky ones, can wend their way into the heart, Bob Tarte reveals the truth of animal ownership — and who really owns whom.
