Barron's Complete Pet Owner's Manuals; This season, nine new titles are being added to Barron's extensive series of Complete Pet Owner's Manuals. These heavily illustrated, fact-filled books instruct owners on how to care for their dogs, cats, birds, and other pets. Many titles in this series also advise aquarium and terrarium hobbyists on virtually every aspect of those fascinating activities. Books present advice on purchasing, feeding, health care, and much more. The texts are clearly written and easy for non-experts to follow, and are accompanied by full-colour photos and instructive line drawings on most pages. Degus; Resembling a small squirrel with large ears and a tufted tail, the degu is a fascinating animal to observe and an exotic pet to own.
