The Art of Nauga Farming is a lighthearted romp through the ins and outs of Nauga farming from the vantage point of Paul Greene, journalist for The Tribune. His efforts to conduct an in-depth interview on the subject with Jon Frenworthy, a local Nauga farmer, are revealed within a transcript being readied for publication by Ester Honester, Managing Editor of The Tribune, and her Consulting Editor, Andrew Poorboy.
Although successful overall, Paul is sidetracked by a series of progressively deeper interactions with the Frenworthy family. Finding himself immersed in a world filled with creatures such as the Sharp Toothed Saren and the Wartleback, Paul's interview covers a broad spectrum of Nauga related activities including Nauga riding and Nargle tossing. Ultimately however, it ends up revealing as much about the Frenworthys and Paul himself as the business and fun involved in the raising of Naugas.

Excellent book if you are looking for a laugh. I recommend it.
This book takes me back to the days when the Navy had naugahyde everything. As a highly tongue in cheek work about farming a fictional critter, the story At first, it was a little off putting that the story seemed to be written more like a script for a play than a novel. However, as I got into the story, I couldn’t imagine it being written any other way. With plenty of laughs throughout, Ms Grieco manages to strike the delicate balance that makes humorous fiction one of the hardest genres to write. The Art of Nauga Farming is an excellent read for one and all.
