Publisher Comments:

Unlikely Friendships is a phenomenon. Its a runaway New York Times bestseller with more than 260,000 copies in print in less than half a year;  a book with its compelling message of hope and friendship and differences overcome. Temple Grandin called it “. . . amazing. It shows the power of friendship.”

Now Unlikely Friendships is rewritten for younger readers: Unlikely Friendships for Kids, a series of hardcover chapter books for children, ages seven and up. Here are three collections each with five of the clearest, most interesting stories from the original book, like the monkey and the dove or the leopard and the cow. Chapter books give young readers a strong sense of accomplishment, and these heartwarming animal stories, with their incredible photographs and inexplicable mysteries of attraction, their focus on friendship, love, and the ways that creatures of all different species can find common bonds of affection, will keep kids turning the pages to find out about the unusual ways animals help each other and discover the love of new friends.

Each is a perfect gift for young animal lovers, and a lovely subject to help kids get reading.

Michael Shean-Jones, September 17, 2012 (view all comments by Michael Shean-Jones)
The book Unlikely Friendships is about inter-species friendships (between animals).
It contains 47 remarkable stories that show the power of friendship that scientist may scoff at. Yet as I turn each page, I was amazed and awestruck at a mama dog and her litter of pups cuddling a squirrel, a lioness protecting a baby antelope, an Asian elephant being "faithful 100 percent" to a dog a hippo and a tortoise snuggling up and so forth.
This book is pure wow.

Transcribed for Erin, Age 9 by her father, Mike.
