  2. Wow, I had no idea about what zoo animals suffered, and continue to suffer during wartime. I signed the petition, and would be interested in hearing more about your efforts in this direction.

    Also, the book sounds fascinating. Please keep us updated about its progress!

  3. Jess, You’d be surprised what I learned in my research. It makes me wonder why zoos exist at all anymore. As for the book, getting it published has been a real stuggle. I made the (nearly) cardinal sin of anthropomorphizing the animals, which most publishers A) think “children’s book!” It ain’t, or B) “we can never sell this.” I know that Animal Farm and Watership Down both faced the same issues when they were written so I’m not giving up! I keep a photo of “my elephants” (1938-1945) on my desk to remind me why it’s important. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks, Curtis

  4. Dear Curtis I was so upset to see this hapoening and I too had not realised the animals were not moved and saved.
    I have seen your petition and have signed it but was so sad to see that hardly any people have signed it, I hope you don’t mind but I have shared it on Facebook and have opened a petition on in hope that I can help you in anyway to have the animals included in the Geneva convention and stop this from happening.
    KKind regards Karen
