Overview

Unlikely Friendships is a phenomenon.  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.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Miranda McClain
Most of the time birds of a feather flock together, literally, but every now and then one hears a story of an unlikely animal pairing. The story of Owen and Mzee for example, the old tortoise and the baby hippo that became best friends, captured the hearts of readers around the world. Here is a collection of similar tales from around the globe sought out by the author after she witnessed the odd behavior of two very different types of fish enjoying each other's company. Young readers will be charmed by the title story of the dog and the tiny baby pig but they will find equally sweet the story of the deer and the dog and the iguana and the cat. There is also the highly entertaining tale of the orangutan and the cat and the very funny story about the hippopotamus and the goat. Each story in this second book in the "Unlikely Friendships for Kids" series will bring a smile to the readers face. Reviewer: Miranda McClain

    Cute book. But could be cheaper.

    My 10 year old wanted a short book to read and she loves animals. Got this for her and she thought it was really cute. Wish it was a little cheaper for a quick read. She loved the pictures!!!
