Book Blog Tour Stop - The Chimp Who Loved Me by Annie Greer and Tim Vandehey

I'm so pleased today to host a book blog tour stop for the hilarious book, "The Chimp Who Loved Me: And Other Slightly Naughty Tales of A Life With Animals" by Annie Greer and Tim Vandehey.

About The Book:

The Chimp Who Loved Me is a collection of true stories from the life and times of Annie Greer, a veterinary chiropractitioner, animal healer, radio host, speaker, farmer’s wife and all-around magnet for bizarre animal behavior.  When Annie and Tim Vandehey, a professional writer, met in 2006 and began talking about Annie’s endless trove of strange and pants-wettingly funny tales about drill sergeant sheep and insane veterinary clinic customers, a book was born.

Infused with Annie’s trademark dry English wit and Tim’s storytelling panache, The Chimp Who Loved Me is a sort of twisted love child of Dave Barry, David Sedaris and James Herriot ofAll Things Bright and Beautiful fame.  If you’re sick of the treacly sweetness of animal books like Marley and Me or Dewey and crave twisted tales of sex, poop, pee and death, where apes throw donuts at chefs during dinner parties and stoned veterinary students dispense bizarre advice to puzzled dog show contestants, then you won’t be able to put The Chimp Who Loved Me down…until it hits you in the nose because you’re reading in bed, silly!

I absolutely adored this charming book - ok, I'll be honest here - I loved it!  There are few books that have me laughing out loud while I'm reading, and "The Chimp Who Loved Me" had me howling with glee as my husband wondered what in the world was I reading!  And when I would read excerpts, he joined me in the laughter!  Annie Greer's tales of life among the animals is just priceless - a sure cure for any blues or blahs you might have!  Animal lovers will enjoy this book, as well as anyone who loves a good giggle now and then!
