Imagine them: Millions of years before they became the snooty, foppish familiars of the dog world, eons before they were Frenchified and clipped into walking topiary and pompoms ... wild poodles, roaring across the savanna like thunder, a famished, snarling pack of them advancing inexorably upon some heedless dinosaur prey ... they are bloodthirsty, they are savage, they are shaggy ... If you're the type of person who often finds him- or herself imagining such a scenario, and wondering if it happened just like that, it's time you joined the millions of readers who have had equally distressing questions solved by the expert in such matters, the master of imponderables, David Feldman. When did wild poodles roam the Earth?, the sixth collection of answers to life's most puzzling conundrums, is the richest and most entertaining volume in the series
