Animals

"Rewarding fare for younger browsers"--Kirkus


The gripping follow-up to Survivors will delight readers even more with stories of brave animals in the most dramatic situations.



For as long as there have been wars, animals have been out there saving lives. Courageous dogs, cats, birds, horses, and even a bear have shown courage and devotion, and this book tells you their extraordinary stories.
Includes the story of Jet the Alsatian who became a hero of the Blitz, pulling survivors from burning rubble, night after night. Gallipoli Murphy, the donkey who served as an ambulance. Simon, the cat who saved his crew. And many, many more


These animals help us to remember that not all heroes are human.


Glorious full-color double-page illustrations throughout.
