For Animal Lovers is an easy read--but fun and thought-provoking. I'd never considered that a cow might have dreams. It makes sense, though, especially for one named Charlie.

I love the way cats seem to sense your feelings, and the better ones will cuddle up with comfort, like Pascal. His story is a classic!

My favorite is "Abduction at Sea," with its "otherworld" and "aliens" and mako sharks. I like the mom: "sadness spread through her body like a disease." Janet reflects a true mother's hopes and fears--and sacrifice.

Kim Cano's "For Animal Lovers" is a collection of three short stories that go straight to the heart of the human animal. All three stories feature animals who talk, telling a story with a very nice lesson.

The first story is "Becoming Sacred." Charlie is a cow who has dreamed of going to India for most of his life in order to become sacred. The other cows coax him to a part of the pasture where there is a great-tasting patch of grass, and encourage Charlie that someday he will make it to India.

The next story is "Pascal's Magic" in which an adopted kitty is comforted and welcomed into a new home. He loves his humans, but the day comes when Pascal is the comforter. A wonderful story that shows how humans and animals can feel for each other and comfort each other.

"Abduction at Sea" is the last story and it is a heartwarming story about a mother swordfish and what lengths she will go to to help and also to save her child. Although these are animals, the stories can relate to human relationships as well.

As an animal lover, I enjoyed these stories, but best of all, the description says that 10% of the sales of these stories will go to the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to help homeless pets.

A heart warming and creative stories that make you feel inspired, hopeful and touched by everyday human conditions through creative characters of animals. Strangely, I connected with each of the characters and appreciated their struggles, their strength, their desire to dream and to never give up hope. I recommend these imaginative and creative short stories to anyone, as I think it touches all walks of life with the power of love.

Why doesn't everyone that cares the slightest about the love for animals, and the rewards we get in return from them, spend more time reading books like this and less time finding ways to be mean and disrespectful. On my Facebook like page there is a Post: You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those that can do nothing for him, by James Miles. The author gets it with this book and it was a joy to read.

Both kids and adults characters enjoy these three tales told from the animal's point of view. Each one quickly pulls the reader in, but be aware, they're not your typical hapily ever after stories. They deal with dificult topics: death, divorse, and where our food comes from. Expect kids to have questions.

I bought this book for my 9 yr old and he loved it. He has read it a few times already. I thought it was very well written and not just for kids. I enjoy the stories myself. Would recommend this to any one.

What a delightful read! Kim Cano has embarked upon a very different path to take the reader into the mind of an animal. Makes you think, doesn't it? The three stories she has outlined here are thought-provoking and easy to read. I think my favorite was "Abduction at Sea" although they were all equally entertaining. Each tale puts the reader in the mind and body of an animal or fish and puts the "shoe on the other foot." These stories can be for any age; good for children and adults as well. I liked the fact that I could read one and have it finished, think about it, and go on to the next one at a later time without losing any of the content. Thanks, Ms. Cano for your candor and expression in dealing with a very touchy subject. While this book may not move mountains I am betting it will give you food for thought and even better, the writer donates back to the ASPCA! Couldn't get better than that. Read this, you won't be sorry!

This is a book of stories from the point of view of the animals. Life and death and relations between the animal world and humans are all covered here. I especially liked the story of the cow whose greatest dream was to go and live in India, where cows are sacred, and as well the story of the sailfish family with a handicapped child. Nothing not to like here. I saw that one reviewer felt these stories might be disturbing for some children. I totally disagree. These stories are artfully written and the "characters" lovingly sketched.
