That Bear Ate My Pants

That Bear Ate My Pants
Tony Slater

This book is about the author's trip to Santa Martha Animal Rescue Centre in Ecuador, South America to volunteer. The center takes in any animal that has been abandoned or abused and rehabilitates the ones that they can.

The story is told in first person and is hilarious. It kept me laughing the entire way through. I'm pretty sure it's non-fiction, but either way it's an enjoyable way to learn more about the animals of Ecuador.

There is a tiny bit of language for those who might be offended by such things, but the story is clean and fun. I'll definitely be passing this book on to my husband next and would recommend it to others. 

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

Hi Tima!
Thanks so much for your review of 'That Bear Ate My Pants!'
It is non-fiction - I lived every minute of this story (including all the injuries!).
I had an amazing time in Ecuador, and an even more amazing time writing and publishing the book. I'm hoping my experiences will inspire other people to do a bit of traveling, and maybe even a bit of volunteering - but perhaps not the getting bitten repeatedly part...!
Thanks again!
