Animal Hospital No. 39 is set in Lee Chin-Lun’s husband’s veterinary surgery, with many details taken from real life events. Lee has disguised herself in the narrative as the surgery’s pet cat who can understand the conversations between the animals and record them on paper.
Filled with the most adorable characters, such as the dog seeking refuge and another who lost its owner in the market, the sneezing and coughing cat, the stubborn rabbit who hates to chew but needs its teeth cut and the dizzy butterfly, this is a charming story of one vet’s loving care for all the animals that come through the doors of the Animal Hospital No. 39.
