Unlikely Friendships is the exceptional New York Times bestseller that’s spent forty four weeks at the checklist and has 615,000 copies in print. It’s struck a chord with media, from CBS This Morning to USA Today, and Temple Grandin has praised it as “amazing. It exhibits the ability of friendship.” Now its writer, Jennifer Holland, who writes approximately animal relationships with perception, compassion, and an excellent narrative contact, explores animal attachments that, in human phrases, can basically be referred to as love.
Packed with appealing, breathtaking full-color pictures, Unlikely Loves is a party of affection among species. listed here are tales of parental love, just like the Dalmatian who moms a baby lamb―a lamb that simply occurs to be white with black spots! tales of playful love, together with the fox and the hound who turn into inseparable. And tales of orphaned animals who've stumbled on family-like ties in unforeseen mixtures, just like the elephant who’s bonded with sea lions, goats, and different animals in her walks round the Oregon Zoo.
Ms. Holland has interviewed scientists, zoologists, and animal caretakers from all over the world, monitoring down firsthand assets and eyewitnesses. The tales are written with journalistic integrity and detail―and continually choked with the author’s deep affection for her subjects.
