  1. you can make a book out of anything and if your hobby is collecting lost pet posters, all you gotta do is take pictures of them, and all the work of filling those pages is done for you and to those of you who are already thinking what kind of monster collects lost pet fliers, removing them so that people don t know someone is missing their pet , never fear the author advises If you start your own collection, replace posters you remove with new ones if you remove one, make copies and put ten back [...]


  2. Way back when when I was just a little tyke with a Dorothy Hamill haircut and dreams of being a Hula Hoop queen that s another story Way back then, my dad used to take in all sorts of strays My first dog, Mimmy rhymes with Kimmy was a mini French poodle I loved that dog She was yippie and liked to run in circles around my legs and didn t argue much when I dressed her in my doll clothes, most of all SHE WAS ALL MINE I don t have any photos of her now which really bums me out I just have my flaili [...]


  3. This was surprisingly heavy reading Some pages were easier to flip through than others, but most of the posters demanded a bit of thought and concern before I could turn to the next Far from being the coffee table flip book I thought it would be like Puppies Underwater for example I spent quite a bit of time examining the posters and wondering if the pets and their owners were ever reunited The posters of the stolen pets with big rewards and no questions asked were especially sad I thought My je [...]


  4. The cute flip book animation on the left pages earned the book an extra star Loved the thick paper too, probably worth the overpricing.


  5. I am always a sucker for books taking off from zines assembled from a collection of the ephemera of the everyday world of human life and society, and this one was affecting, sad, and beautiful than many Consisting of posters gleaned from across the world in the last years of the 20th century, Lost illustrates the love and sense of grief people feel for their missing pets, and the creative ways that people use to express their loss and their hope for a reunion Dogs, cats, ferrets, even cows and [...]


  6. Since I was the creator of two such posters a few months ago, oddly enough for one lost cat found , then one found dog never found owner, adopted though by someone , I had a personal reason to want to read this book immediately It was of course an extremely sad heartbreaking collection of posters, and a strange collection to have in my opinion I thought the children s drawings were cute and funny, but I was disappointed in the foreign language posters that were included with little to no transla [...]


  7. This is a pretty cute little book it s so fast to get through I went through the entire thing in under a half hour tonight The posters and drawing from the children are absolutely heartbreaking Some of them are humorous, some are just plain old posters It s sad to think that probably most of them didn t make it home A very few have the end result added, example this one made it home, this one was hit by a car and died, etc I wish he has maybe added , what happened to all of them, the ones he cou [...]


  8. This book came to me via the free books bin at the library I grabbed it as I was taking some other things, because hey, why not.Now that I ve read it, I can t imagine why someone gave it away for free, and I m loath to get rid of it myself You might think it would be depressing, but it s actually rather whimsical and amusing Plus, the posters are from every continent except Antarctica, so they re also interesting from a linguistic standpoint It was interesting to see the ones written in Japanese [...]


  9. This book is a mix between cute and sad, depending on the way you look at it The author is doing a pretty good job with his little drawings and maps at making it appealing, but if you ve ever lost a pet and been worried sick to your stomach 24 7 and not able to sleep at night or function at all because all you do is think what might have happenied to your lost animal, then the book becomes a reminder of what you and the people who posted the flyers have been through, and they are not good memori [...]


  10. A cute, funny and poignant way to kill an hour here and there It would be nice if some of the posters in foreign languages had accompanying English translations, and while the occasional tidbits about pets being found and returned home are nice, the occasional tidbits about pets being found dead in the bushes aren t so nice It s not earth shattering amazing, but it s sweet, and amusing, and overall just good times.


  11. A sad and at times strange look at what happens when pets go missing Especially sad, to me, were the lost pet signs made by children with no or incomplete contact information, and doodles instead of photos This indicated to me that the parents didn t care enough about the family pet to even attempt at getting the animal home safely Tips on locating a lost companion animal are included.


  12. If you occasionally take pleasures in the innocent misfortune of others, this one is for you Each page tells the story of desperation as owners resort to the one hope that someone will find and return their precious pets If it weren t for lost snakes named bitey, and ducks who DON T answer to the name Neither Norman, it would really be a tragedy.Recommended by Amy


  13. Nine times out of ten, I prefer animals to people, so this book tended to make me a little sad especially the lost cats, and especially the Lost signs that were obviously made by bereaved children.


  14. I read this book cover to cover in a book store years ago It s a collection of lost pet posters from all over the world Some were funny Some were kind of sad My Favorite one was simply Turtle Find him Quick and sweet but not much nutritional value Like a literary bonbon.


  15. I don t know if I can really read this book Kim s review of it made me tear up I m not sure that I have the fortitude to make it all the way through But aren t the pets worth it enough to at least try


  16. I tend to disagree with everyone, I thought this book was just plain boring all of it in black white which made it quite bland The idea was good but the book itself just didn t hold up


  17. This book contains one item of physical proof of the most bizarre coincidence in my life it s kind of a cute book other than that though just ask me some time.








  18. A very entertaining read, despite the nature of the subject It was interesting to see what people will put on a poster for a lost animal.



  19. One of the most depressing books I ve read Especially the fact that about 90% of lost pets aren t found, in America alone.
