Real Animal Heroes

Dramatic and touching true stories about animals that throughout the ages have performed incredible acts of heroism.

Those of us who love animals know that they can be both cute and funny. But did you know that animals can also be real heroes?

In this book you will meet animals that have done incredible things: the sled dog Togo who saved an entire Alaskan village from a dangerous disease. The elephant Ning Nong who brought a little girl to safety when a tsunami wave was approaching. The lifesaving rat Magawa who has helped clear areas of mines and has received a real gold medal. And many more.

With colorful illustrations, cartoons and easy-to-read text, Real Animal Heroes tells the dramatic and touching true stories of animals that have helped humans.
