Gerald Durrell is among the best-selling authors in English. His adventurous spirit and his spontaneous gift for narrative and anecdote stand out in his accounts of expeditions to Africa and South America in search of rare animals. He divines the character of these creatures with the same clear, humorous, and unsentimental eyes with which he regards those chance human acquitances whose conversation in remote places he often reproduces in all their devastating and garbled originality. To have maintained, for over fifteen years, such unfailing standards of entertainment can only be described as a triumph.

Three Singles to Adventure takes the reader to South America, where he meets the sakiwinki and the sloth clad in bright green fur, where he can hear the horrifying sound of piranha fish on the rampage, or learn how to lasso a galloping anteater.
