Amazing True-Life Tales; Astounding Wildlife Facts

A mix of inspiring true stories and fascinating facts and information, all presented across bright, colourful pages with striking, atmospheric illustrations, this is a terrific book for anyone who loves animals.  Amongst the animal heroes whose stories we hear are Balto, a sledge dog who helped deliver live-saving medicine in  the Alaska winter; Wojtek, the bear who became a favourite with Polish soldiers in World War 2; and Machli, a tiger who fought with an enormous crocodile to save her cubs. There are lots more too, animals who were never given names but whose actions demonstrate incredible intelligence and resilience.  As Jess French says in her introduction, there’s always something new to learn about animals, and this book proves that time and time again.

The Book of Animal Superheroes Synopsis

Discover real-life stories of animals who have achieved the most heroic or astounding feats, and tons of fascinating animal facts - from dogs, cats and rabbits to birds, whales and insects. A fascinating combination of true-life tales of heroic animals and information on incredible topics such as animal senses, intelligence, communication and the importance of animal conservation.

Included are the heart-warming stories of Mari the Japanese Shiba Inu who saved her puppies and human owner from the destruction of an earthquake, Digit the gorilla whose brave actions highlighted the importance of gorilla conversation worldwide, Lin Wang the war elephant who became a national hero and so many more.

A real highlight of this gorgeous book is the stunning artwork of David Dean, whose paintings bring drama and atmosphere to every scene, and a foreword by television presenter and veterinarian Jess French.
