Dear Selina Lai,

I'm not certain off the top of my head, but I would immediately suspect 
Durrell's /Balthazar/.  I'll take a look and will forward your query to 
the Durrell Society's listserv -- hopefully we'll have an answer for you!

(Does anyone on the listserv have an answer for Selina??  Charles?)
