Deborah Bruss, when writing Book! Book! Book!, wondered: If chickens and frogs can speak English, maybe other barnyard animals can, too. She consulted with a few, but none, as yet, have spoken up.
Ms. Bruss has one dog, three snapping turtles, one white dove, a rooster, and a hen on her farm in Bradford, New Hampshire. She also has a husband, two sons and twin daughters.
