From the Lives of the Famous
Oh, to have a cute pet at home! How about a loyal dog or cat, or some other, exotic animal? If you were thinking that children only have such wishes, think again. Famous and highly respected people, too, long to own pets, and many have made their dreams come true. Something similar can be said of hobbies and pastimes. Famous and ordinary people alike enjoy baking, playing the violin, collecting stamps and beekeeping, to name just a few. The From the Lives of the Famous series tells us about the free-time activities of celebrated personalities, and about their pets. Each story is complemented with illustrations by Czech and Slovak artists, some well known, others just starting out.
