About this book

The French poet, Theophile Gautier once asked, "Who can believe that there is no soul behind those luminous eyes?" And it's true – if you have ever loved an animal, you know that there is something special about them. Random Acts of Kindness by Animals proves it, through amazing and heartwarming true tales of animal compassion, devotion, and bravery. In the pages of Random Acts of Kindness by Animals readers will meet remarkable dogs and cats, as well as gorillas, dolphins, bears, seagulls, rats, birds, and one heroic pig! Even ants are caught practicing compassion, as they're observed pulling a thorn from an injured comrade. Included are well-publicized stories, such as the gorilla that carried an injured child to safety, as well as the more obscure, like the German Shepherd that visited the grave of his deceased owner every day at the same hour. This sweet book also reflects human acts of kindness to animals.

Edward Lear, author of The Owl and the Pussycat, built his new house as an exact replica of his old one to keep from traumatizing his beloved cat. Random Acts of Kindness by Animals proves that these are thinking creatures with real emotions – hardly news to animal lovers – and provides a window into the lives of some amazing critters!
