Anyone who's walked into a gift shop in Portland will instantly recognize Ryan Berkley's animal portraits; I’ll admit I have the "Lion in a Suit" print on my wall at home! The descriptions of the animals’ backstories by his wife, Lucy Berkley, are fun and clever as well. This is the kind of book you could give to almost anyone, for any occasion.
