A police dog helps take down criminals and searches for lost children. A cat defies odds and distance to be reunited with its family. A lion cub blissfully shares a kitchen with a family and a few pugs. These true stories and more are collected in this inspiring book by Joyce Grant-Smith. These tales show us the breadth and width of an animal’s ability to communicate with each other, and us with them. Primarily rooted in the Maritimes, each story shows a very different example of how a pet can influence events around them, including an eye-opening account of the growing field of Annimal Communications–people who learn to interpret and respect what these critters are trying to tell us, and who help other people communicate as well.There are 18 stories in total, and each is written in a heartwarming style reminiscent of the Chicken Soup for the Soup series, and will be a pleasant and uplfting read for all ages.
