Still More Names for Animals? Are You Serious? by Carnita Groves is a must read. Even though the book is dedicated to ranchers, cowboys, cowgirls, farmers, and wranglers, anyone wanting to know more about animals will enjoy reading the book.

The book introduces the reader to some unique animals. I am always open to learning new things and reading, Still More Names for Animals, introduced me to many new animals. One in particular is the Cassowary bird. The Cassowary is one of the largest flightless birds in the world second to the ostrich.

All authors must find a way to market and brand themselves. Carnita Groves’ use of humor is an ingenious and effective way to write about a topic that most people find boring. The author’s humor drew me in right away. I absolutely love the section about the Kiwi bird. I never knew such a bird existed.

“Oh sure! Kiwis are delicious as fruit, but once they hatch and become mammals — turns out they are not so tasty. And fruit smoothies? Forget about it! Just try cleaning fur out of a blender. Just leave these little guys be and let them roam the farmyard, barns, cow pens, and wherever in the world it is they roam. They are totally harmless. Gently pet them now and again, while humming a lovely tune.”

I plan to read all of Carnita Groves’ books. Her writing style is very refreshing. Therefore, if you like learning about animals and want to get entertained at the same time, I recommend you purchase a copy.
