Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lion, Tiger, and Bear, oh my!

In Locust Grove, Georgia, an American black bear named Baloo, a lion named Leo, and a Bengal tiger named Shere Kahn all live happily together. The three animals were rescued over twelve years ago and brought to live at Noahs Ark Animal Sanctuary. The trainers there tried to separate the trio for fear that fights would break out. The animals did start acting out—but only until they were reunited in the same pen. This true story of unlikely friendship is filled with photographs supplied directly from Noahs Ark Animal Sanctuary.

Synopsis:

The U.S.S. Monitor was an entirely new type of warship when it launched in 1862. Dubbed "the forefather of the modern Navy," this ironclad ship changed how wars are fought at sea. But on New Year's Eve, 1862, it sank off the coast of North Carolina in a terrible storm. No one thought the Monitor could be raised, but after 140 years, parts of the ironclad have finally been brought to the surface. This book chronicles the Monitor's revolutionary design, exciting battle, and intriguing excavation.

Illustrated by Larry Day.
