Amazing animal stories that span the centuries come to life in this beautifully written and illustrated book.

Some are sweet, some funny, some surprising, but all are emotionally powerful - the Capitolene geese who saved the Roman empire, Balto the Alaskan sled dog, Smoky the Bear, the passenger pigeon of WWI Cher Ami, and the latest internet sensation Christian the lion. A collection such as this comes along only once in a generation, full of heart-warming tales that families will read, re-read, and remember.

This has been a great collection of stories to read to my daughters. They enjoy the pictures and it has opened up many conversations about different subjects including history, biology, psychology, not just about the animals but also about the people they interact with. I have really enjoyed this book and strongly recommend it to anyone wanting to introduce their children to non-fiction stories.
