After a great evening of food, fun and a full group, the Jane Austen Book Group has chosen to indulge in some jocularity with Jeeves. In other words, we are going to read P. G. Wodehouse, beginning with two books from his famous Jeeves series.
While I give the little National Geographic Pocket Guide: Birds of North America four stars, be warned that this is not a field guide. It does not even cover all common birds in any region. For instance, it covers four woodpecker species but completely leaves out the Hairy Woodpecker, which is a common enough species anywhere.
Disappointing. Over the years since the O'Malley series came out, I have recommended it warmly to many readers. I was excited about this addition to the great family Henderson had created. When I first saw the book, my heart sank. It was so small, I knew it couldn't have much to it. And I was right. The story doesn't give much new information or background for Jennifer.
