BOOKTRADER'S ANIMAL DICTIONARY
 
 
How often have you not had your pig or dog come home from abroad with an ignominious defeat a part of its baggage; in England the poor creature has said 'f', where it should have said 'oink', or it has presented itself on the Bengali Coast with a 'vov', where by rights it should be 'gheu'. Derision among animals is just as vicious as that among human beings, and there are limits to how many such defeats a sensitive animal can bear.

With Dr. Stampe's Onomatopetic Animal Dictionary these conditions have finally been brought to an end. You can now send your animal abroad without worry. Give the animal this book in its rucksack, and it will be able to present itself and converse with other animals in all nations, of importance, throughout the globe.

Dr. Stampe wishes to express his gratitude to the following contributors, who speak the languages of the animals: Rasmus Seier, Osman M. Hamad, Christian Srensen, Arien Rincon, Anna Nrr, Gabriela Fonseca, Rui Andersen, Gregory Stephenson, Anna Maria Helgadottir, Nikolaj Ivan, Anna-Maria Lalounta Tolstrup, Knizer Bagara, Gisela Kosubek, Anja og Ken Ferdinandsen, Henning Vangsgaard, Birgitta Gervig, Hardy Stockmann, Marion Askjr Veld, Pia og Henrik Zangenberg, Felix Alexiadis, Slobodan Jovanovic, and Lubomir, the Bulgarian.
