The Book Option
HardcoverSoftcoverPatricia Heaton has optioned Bob Tarte's book "Enslaved by Ducks", and is exploring the possibility of creating a television movie or series based on the book.

"Enslaved By Ducks" is a memoir about a Michigander whose new wife is such an animal lover that she insisted he buy a veritable menagerie of parrots, ducks, doves, rabbits and more.

About the book
When Bob Tarte bought a house in rural Michigan, he was counting on a tranquil haven. Then Bob married Linda. She wanted a rabbit, which seemed, at the time, innocuous enough.

But that was just the beginning. Wouldn't a parrot be cute? Linda said. Bob suddenly found himself constructing pens, buying feed, clearing duck waste, spoon feeding at mealtime. One day he realized he'd become a servant to a relentlessly demanding family, and a motley crew it was. Writing as someone who's been ambushed by the way in which animals, even cranky ones, can wend their way into the heart, Bob Tarte reveals the truth of animal ownership-and who really owns whom. -- from the publisher
