elahrairah: From the moment I heard of this book I was captivated. What did it mean? I read it expecting magic and wizards and stuff, what I got was a schooling.

Explicacions
muumi: Most of Gerald Durrell's titles are extremely memorable. A Zoo in My Luggage? The Overloaded Ark? This title can stand in for the entire oeuvre of a master title-maker.
Delameyo: This title came across my radar because the author Gerald Durrell not only spent time in Corfu, but also travelled to my native country, Guyana and described the biodiversity and wonder he encountered. It definitely makes me wonder what kind of people did such journeys around the globe, and appreciate his contributions to wildlife conservation.

Delameyo: Last name is similar to mine. Young African female author talking about a sensitive, yet poignant relationship in an unexpectedly sardonic way. And the cover!

muumi: I've always liked this title. Not enough to read a children's book about vegetarian vampire bunnies, but enough to smile about it.

Explicacions
muumi: This one is not just an unusual title, it's a hilarious editorial mistake. McCaffrey wanted "Get OF", ie progeny of ,"the Unicorn" and it got stupidly changed -- and it made her laugh and agree to keep it because it's funny in its own right.
