Praise forBeasts in My Belfry "A loving chronicle of jitter-bugging gnus, singing duets with a bear, stealing eggs to feed the Arctic foxes, practicing tiger sniffs . . . Highly entertaining and informative."--The Times "A hilarious record that no Durrell fan will want to miss."--Sunday Telegraph "Durrell manages to convey not only that he loves animals, but that he enjoys life too - and wants you to enjoy it with him."--Daily Mirror
