Overview

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 Cristian the lion. A collection such as this comes along only once in a generation, full of heartwarming tales that families will read, re-read, and remember.

This is an excellent book for kids of all ages - beautifully illustrated. I purchased it for great-nephews and learned a lot reading it myself. Recommend it whole-heartedly.
