I really enjoyed the zoo setting in this book.

I have to hand it to Webb, she definitely did her research for this book. I enjoyed the meticulous details of day-to-day zoo life almost more than I did the plot. Webb effortlessly balances zoo drama with the bigger whodunit drama. I’m also pleased that Webb didn’t let the “should I or shouldn’t I?” tension between Teddy and Joe drag on past my (admittedly low) tolerance threshold.

I loved this book--from its unlikely title, finely designed jacket with beautifully rendered art to all those surprising anteater facts and convincing glimpses into a zoo keeper's world. Contrapuntal themes of murder and pregnancy to birth were skillfully intertwined. Especially engaging was the anteater's perspective. The matter-of-factness of the narrator combined with sly humor with slapstick overtones kept me entertained throughout. I couldn't put it down.
