%%
%% Before you add a work, especially if it's about animals: Is the work set in an animal parallel of human society? Do the non-human characters talk the way humans do? Do the non-human characters consistently use human reasoning? Do the non-human characters do things that are typically associated with humans? If one or more of these things is the case, this book is NOT xenofiction and do not index it on this page.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Literary works that take the point of view of normal or intelligent animals, or nonhumanoid aliens, with particular attention to differences in perception or outlook.

Keep in mind that {{Xenofiction}} is not synonymous with anthropomorphic.

If you can replace the non-humans with (maybe superpowered) humans without too much trouble, it's probably not {{Xenofiction}}. {{Beast Fable}}s and works about {{Funny Animal}}s are, in general, not examples.
