    Do animals experience emotion? That’s the fascinating question that drives this quirky and engaging work of popular science writing. In seeking answers, Peter Wohlleben (The Hidden Life of Trees)investigates whether our constant tendency to anthropomorphise other living creatures is, in fact, justified. Weaving recent research into the context of broader scientific enquiry, Wohlleben discovers that animals’ emotions, behaviours and intelligence are more similar to humans than we might think, and often in surprising ways –from a deer that experiences grief, to a hedgehog who has nightmares, to a magpie who commits adultery. This discursive and energetic book mingles elements of science, ethics and philosophy. It may just reshape the way you think about animals.
