Creature Features by Tim Rowland

Being an animal lover, I couldn’t resist reading author Tim Rowland’s CREATURE FEATURES as part of his Premier Virtual Book Tour. I’m so glad I did.

This is a light-hearted look at life on the farm…Rowland-style. This Cover for Tim Rowland's Creature Featuresdelightful book is a collection of warm and funny essays from Rowland’s newspaper column. He shares how the animals in his and his wife Beth’s life make for interesting and sometimes unexpected adventures.

CREATURE FEATURES is comprised of more than 75 essays on the various animals and their exploits. The stories will bring you to tears from laughing. Those with animals can relate on so many levels to the mishaps and triumphs having pets will bring.

This is a quick and easy book to read. The stories flow from one adventure to the next giving you insight into living the farm life. The stories are written in a down-to-earth style that reminds me of a friend sharing daily happenings with you.

While CREATURE FEATURES is a must read for animal lovers, it’s also an entertaining book for those without animals in their lives. For some, it might entice you to get a pet and for others it will be a timely reminder of why you’re pet less. Either way, the book will bring a little laughter into your life.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live with chickens, cows, horses, a pig, donkeys, goats, along with a dog, cats and much more - pick up a copy of CREATURE FEATURES and get inspired.

Rowland is an award-winning columnist at Herald-Mail Media in Hagerstown, Maryland. He has written for numerous history and outdoor magazines and news syndicates nationwide. His website is

FTC Full Disclosure - I requested this book as part of the author’s virtual book tour. An eBook copy of the book was sent to me by the author in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
