"Unlikely Friendships..." is a truly wonderful calendar...

I got the 2012 calendar and I am completely delighted with it.. the images are clear and beautiful ... [I read another review that had me concerned, I worried that I was in for a disappointment, a calendar of blurry badly reproduced photos blown-up beyond their limit. I don't know how that person had such a bad experience, maybe it's an eyesight issue, because it in no way resembles what I've encountered.]

The cover is a thick sturdy grade of high-gloss paper, the pages are flawlessly printed, quality-wise, everything it should be.
The calendar I received is as beautiful as the pictures online and the affiliation with National Geographic would suggest.
The photos are very large, beyond the fold... and even as large as the photos are, there is still room for a paragraph about each pair of "unlikely friends" AND a spacious calendar with plenty of space for writing on each day. Furthermore, both the stories and photos are touching and inspiring, as expected. (It even arrived well-packaged and ahead of schedule.)

It's utterly, unreservedly GORGEOUS. And I'm perfectly pleased with it now, and each day...and I'm sure each and every month.

I have to say I almost didn't order this calendar after reading a negative review, but I'm glad I did. The photos are clear, the images are sweet, and I'm happy to have it for my son. He loves reading the background information on each image. The only reason I didn't give this calendar a five-star rating is that the paper is a little thin for a calendar.

I love this calendar! It is an inspiration to see members of the animal kingdom coexisting peacefully and, in fact, truly enjoying their amazing friendships with other species. Makes me feel humans could do the same if we tried harder. Each new month has its own inspirational story and photo. There is a companion book with the same title detailing additional unlikely animal friendships which I love to keep on hand and give as gifts to someone, say, in the hospital or a shut-in who loves animals.

Unlikely Friendships is a very special book. I loved the interaction between
different animals who aren't usually friends. The world could benifit from
being more like these creature of God.

It is so much fun to turn the page of the month to encounter another sweet, funny photo of an unusual pairing. The graphics are sharp, and colors vivid....a calendar to entertain as the year goes by.
