KINGDOM OF PLAY What Ball-Bouncing Octopuses, Belly-Flopping Monkeys, and Mud-Sliding Elephants Reveal About Life Itself

by | Read by Jacques Roy

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Jacques Roy's warm, even performance makes for an inviting listen. We may think we know when an animal is in play mode, but how do we understand the deeper mysteries of animal behavior? Listeners will appreciate this audiobook's deep dive into thoughtful research on concepts we may assume we understand. What, exactly, is animal play? What constitutes fun for a monkey or a seal? And how did dogs come to have such successful relationships with humans? Even listeners with just a casual interest in the nature of animal behavior will enjoy this well-researched audiobook. Roy's tone is never dry, dull or overbearing. His voice is a guide through this global tour of land and sea mammals, and how they thrive.
