Description
The humorist behind The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody, Will Cuppy also produced three classic "How To" books, including this one. It examines curious creatures—Birds Who Can't Even Fly, Optional Insects, Octopuses and Those Things—whose habits, or whose mere existence, seem to have disturbed the author's sense of propriety. Here too are creatures like the Frog, the Gnat, and the Moa, which have no visible vices but whose virtues are truly awful. Under such headings as Problem Mammals, Pleasures of Pond Life, and Birds Who Can't Sing and Know It, Cuppy provides 50 short pieces and some longer meditations, including "The Poet and the Nautilus," "Swan-upping, Indeed!" and "How To Swat a Fly," all illustrated with more than 100 Ed Nofziger cartoons. But the seat of honor belongs, of course, to that lowly, nocturnal marsupial, the Wombat, who stars in three pieces and emerges here as something like Cuppy's alter ego in the animal world.
