After their zoo was bombed, Polish zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski managed to save more than three hundred people from the Nazis by hiding refugees in the empty animal cages. With animal names for these "guest," and human names for the animals, it's no wonder that the zoo's code name became "The House Under a Crazy Star." Best-selling naturalist and acclaimed storyteller Diane Ackerman combines extensive research and her exuberant writing style to re-create this fascinating, forgotten, true-life story. Diane Ackerman won the Henry David Thoreau Prize for literary excellence in nature writing in 2015.
W. W. Norton, 2007. Paperback, 367 pp.
