Pleasant Vale gives you the story straight from the cat's mouth, and gives a very different look at life the way one's pet lives it. This is a funny look at human stupidity from the feline perspective. This is THE gift book that any pet owner would enjoy. Pleasant Vale is a two part adventure. The first part, My Life As Beauregard the Cat, was written from the perspective of a cat named Beauregard. This is a life story from the cat's view. The second part, I've Come To Die In My Bed, is a love story combined with an attempt to renovate and deal with the vagaries of living in an old house. The second story line follows some of the many misadventures of learning home ownership the hard way. This is THE gift book that anyone who has attempted to renovate a house would enjoy. Both stories poke fun at the human condition. Pleasant Vale is a book that is very different indeed!
