MEDIA REVIEWS
"Whether they are domestic companions, trained to serve, inspired to heal, or are found in the wild, animals have the ability to enhance our lives and even save us, and this compendium pays homage. ...Individual stories of animal derring-do, illustrated with pencil portraits, make for quick, compelling reads that prompt the reader to wonder what really goes on in an animal's head and heart. Give this to anyone from middle school to adult who shares that curiosity." - Booklist "All the stories are wonderful ... when starting these fifty tender stories, prepare to get teary eyed. Anyone who has ever bonded with an animal will love this book." - Voice of Youth Advocates "With an eye toward documenting remarkable animal/human interactions, Campbell has assembled a large collection of fascinating anecdotes. ...Overflowing with information, fascinating tales and thought-provoking information; give it to animal-loving middle graders on up." -Kirkus Reviews "Well-documented cases of animals rescuing men, women, and children are recounted with precision, organized into four divisions: domestic, trained, wild, and legendary animals. Campbell draws on opinions from professionals and anecdotal evidence, gleaned from ancient to modern times, to understand animal motivations. ...The text flows well, and the compact content is intense... . The documentation shines in this presentation." - School Library Journal

"Animal lovers and anyone with a pet of his/her own will love reading these stories and the possible scientific explanations of how and why these animals saved the humans they did. From kangaroo to lion, from dolphin to dog, and from horse to hamster (there really isn't a hamster, but there is a rabbit), the stories will touch readers' hearts and stir their imagination." - The Examiner
