Some very interesting animal combos in this book including a cat and his buddy the rat, and a leopard who lieth down with a cow. And, another "friends who are natural enemies" tale- a lap dog and a squirrel!
Penned by Jennifer Holland, a well known writer for National Geographic. Truly fabulous and "aaahhh" producing photos, too.
The descriptions are very well written and fascinating also.
One mild complaint. As somebody who is vision impaired, I cannot understand why they used a brown text rather than the standard black.
Loved this and sending copies out to friends and family
"We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals... In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth." --Henry Beston
Some people might think that it's impossible for animals to feel the same emotions humans have and be able to bond and nurture a colorful friendship. My own experience convinces me to believe that pets do have friendships not only with kids but their household room mates and next door the same way kids do. They play together and sleep next to each other, giving us a vivid example of how should we likewise behave towards our fellow humans; "If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men." St. Francis of Assisi
The amazing book, "Unlikely Friendships," shares with its readers stories of friendship, and inter-species affection, such as the expressive cover of a little monkey gently resting his head on the back of a peaceful white dove. The conscious universe's troubadour of the uplifting volume turned to be National Geographic Magazine's senior writer Jennifer Holland. She got a great win for nature advocate, and animal friendly fellowship. The admirable author who normally writes about, "critters that are harder to love," in her own words, takes her readers to the amazing worlds of my grand children, Noah and especially three years Oliver.Read more ›
