Brilliant, beautiful, and intimate – Harriet reminds readers that animals are no different from humans.

What do animals feel or think, especially about having to survive in this world as humans encroach on their habitat? People who love animals and take the time for them could see that animals also experience the same range of emotions as humans. Los Angeles resident and author Michael Springthorpe takes readers into the mind of a possum in “Harriet’s Journal” (AuthorHouse, 2012).    
“Harriet’s Journal” is about Harriet, a possum who was saved by a wonderful family. The book describes Harriet as an adorable and spirited furry animal who loves adventures. She grows up in a family of eight: she dislikes her siblings but loves her mother; her father is an emotionally distant figure. She is friends with Prilty, who lives on the other side of the field and who seems like a little sister to Harriet. Her life changes when she figures out in an accident.
Heart-rending and suspenseful, “Harriet’s Journal” invites readers to look at life and the world through the eyes of a possum. The charming story, which doubles as a wildlife journal, endears readers to Harriet, whose character brings into mind the most adventurous people who later find themselves in a predicament of their own making. Her exploits portray humans’ curiosity about the world and the undying desire to explore it.
“Harriet’s Journal” is available at AuthorHouse, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
