Overview

What makes a camel friends with a Vietnamese pig? Or a wild polar bear pals with a sled dog? In this young preschool book, Catherine Thimmesh makes us wonder at the truth and mystery of unlikely animal friendships. Because the stories behind these friendships are true, not contrived, captured by photographers in many countries ranging from Siberia to Japan, they not only give readers insight into animals but challenge preconceived notions about compatibility. This book also expresses tolerance of differences and makes us look at the kindness of animals—and humans—a little differently.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Thimmesh uses a simple rhyming text and stellar color photos to celebrate unusual friendships...The photos radiate trust and warmth, and the text is soothing and reassuring."—School Library Journal "Thimmesh hops on the cuteness bandwagon with this collection of 13 animal duos who met by chance and, for a time at least, showed mutual curiosity and affection."—Booklist
