  3. @Delicious: Yeah, the animals was the first thing I noticed too. They all seem to be cats and dogs. I have no idea what these books would be about, and I'd rather not take the time to read them.

  4. They're known in the trade as the 'boo-fucking-hoo' books. One man, Andrew Groves, writes a large number of them.
