Unlikely Heroes: 37 Inspiring Stories of Courage and Heart from the Animal Kingdom by Jennifer S. Holland


In this follow-up to her two other heartwarming stories; Unlikely Friendships and Unlikely Loves, Jennifer Holland whips up enthusiasm for the selfless acts of different animals. 
 
The book is divided into: superheroes, everyday heroes, and big-picture heroes. The heroes run the gamut from wild to tame: rats sniff out landmines, a hippo saves a baby gazelle, a horse rescues his owner, and more. 

Inspirational quotes and eye-catching photographs add to the adorable factor. The upbeat text has a positive tone, but these stories aren't mere fluff. 

They include plenty of quotes from experts, and Holland casts a critical eye, for instance when writing about the heroism of elephants, she also emphasizes that these large animals can be destructive. 

This book takes a sweet look at the animal kingdom that will warm the animal-lovers’ heart.
