More than 90 wild, weird, and fun-packed commentaries describe true-life situations in which animals perform amazing feats and incredible stunts, sometimes on their own, and sometimes with help from very unusual owners. Here are animals of every kind, from an exotic pure white alligator in his natural habitat to entirely ordinary looking dogs, cats, and other familiar household pets who do extraordinary things. Boys and girls who love animals will find them more interesting than ever in this wide-ranging selection of often funny and always extraordinary accounts. Here, for example, is the story of Stumpy the four-legged duck, Musashi, the singing Japanese cat, and Charlie, a very athletic cat who climbs a vertical thirteen-foot-high wall so he can bask in the sun on his owner's balcony. Here too is Pixie, a deaf border collie who has shown her ability to learn sign language from her trainer. These are just a few of the absorbing stories told in this entertaining read for the entire family. It's packed with full-color photos and humorous cartoon-style illustrations on most pages.
