About this item

Discover 40 fascinating stories of remarkable animal heroes told with humorous rhymes, fun historical facts, and zany illustrations.

Take a look at the remarkable roles animals undertake every day to help humans and other animals. In wonderfully rhythmic poetry, these stories tell the tales of animals that performed heroic acts, rescued people, saved lives, prevented disasters, and more. From a dog named Delta who saved her owner's life three times before Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD to LuLu the potbellied pig who called for help when her human got sick, these stories will resonate with readers and animal lovers of all ages. Find out about the Battle of Thymbra in 547 BC, in which the Persians used a cavalry of camels to defeat the Lydian army. Discover why General George Washington returned a little dog to the British and probably saved thousands of lives. Ever heard of the heroic baboon named Jackie who acted as a WWI soldier in the frontline trenches of France and Flanders? This animal hero comforted wounded soldiers during battle and collected money for the Red Cross after the war.

Feast on more historical facts of the period in the Did You Know sections. Tell Me More sections offer even more for the inquisitive mind. Zany, colorful, entertaining, and attention-getting drawings make these stories come alive.
