Review: The Pug Who Bit Napoleon

This book was sent to me by Pen and Sword Books in exchange for an honest review.

The Pug Who Bit Napoleon: Animal Tales of the 18th & 19th Centuries by Mimi Matthews is a delightful little book that I enjoyed reading very much.

Made up of 27 short accounts of animal stories, this quick and easy read is heartwarming, funny and touching.

I’m a dog lover so the stories about canine companions were my favorites but there’s one about a goat that I loved almost as much. Cats, birds, horses and exotic pets even make the cut too.

Animals rarely make it into most standard history tomes so this collection is a really lovely and unique book.

A perfect addition to your bookshelf if you love history and animals.
