***The Walrus on My Table
by Anthony Guglielmo and Cari Lynn
Reviewed August 2001.
Available at Sembach Library.
The other nonfiction book I read this week was also about animals.
Anthony Guglielmo is a massage therapist who began practicing massage on
animals. He started with horses, but moved on to walruses, dolphins,
a penguin, dogs, cats, beluga whales, and even a shark. His tales
of how the animals showed their appreciation are astonishing. He has
been able to help cure animals who were hunched over with pain, and has helped
others just plain feel good. I like his story of a cat who always
ignored him. After he massaged the cat, he then tried to massage its
owner (one of his regular human clients), but the cat kept trying to get
between his fingers and her owner. From then on, the cat decided he
was her best friend. This is light and quick reading and will leave
