Samantha S. Bell's 12 Amazing Animal Feats will introduce children to amazing stories that have impacted lives and even history. This includes a variety of animals such as a dog named Chaser that gains an extensive vocabulary, a heroic cat named Scarlett, carrier pigeons, and a raccoon that climbed to the top of the UBS Tower. These animals have saved lives with powerful stories such as a carrier pigeon taking two bullets to deliver a message, a pig that stopped traffic when her owner had a heart attack, and a horse that protected a woman from the charge of a startled cow. The book includes the story of Koko the gorilla whose knowledge of sign language made her a famous name and unforgettable tales such as that of Holly the cat who walked almost 200 miles to return home after being lost on a family trip.

Samantha S. Bell delivers an amazing book that will show children a variety of animals that have performed unbelievable actions from saving lives to walking miles to return home. Photos of the animals are paired with their stories, so children get a genuine sense of who each animal is and feel the impact of their actions. The stories are heartfelt with tales of heroism. Scarlett the cat is a strong example as she risked her own life to save her kittens from a fire. Each story will leave an impact on children while sparking discussion about animals, heroism, and history. The book also includes stories of animals helping other animals such as Moko who helped a mother whale and her baby get to safety after they were stranded on a beach, which led to a sculpture in Moko’s name, and a seal that saved a dog after it was swept away in the water. Samantha S. Bell's 12 Amazing Animal Feats is an incredible collection of tales of animals that saved lives, fought alongside soldiers, and even traveled amazing distances just to return home.
