Unlikely Friendships [Book Review]

First off, Animal Culture would like to apologize for our hiatus. With our author, Kalie Lyn, traveling back to the United States from Spain, and readjusting to her busy work schedule as an animal care giver and pet groomer, life outside of the blogosphere has been quite hectic. But we are back, and ready to get the animal show back on the road!

We start back up with “Book Review Thursday”, and boy, do we have a book for you! From former National Geographic senior writer, Jennifer S. Holland, comes 47 different heartwarming stories of inter-species animal friendships.

So grab a hot cup of tea (since Spring doesn’t seem to be here yet), along with a furry cuddle buddy, and enjoy this week’s book recommendation!

Unlikely Friendships : 47 Remarkable Stories from the Animal Kingdom


It’s the front cover of Unlikely Friendships that grabs your attention first, and instantly makes you fall in love with the book. Once those pages are flipped open, the intriguing yet often little known world of the animal kingdom is revealed, and each of the 47 stories captivates you, making you want to discover more.

Explore the unique friendships of birds and mammals (The Owl and the Greyhound), domestic and wild animals (The Sled Dog and the Polar Bear), and predators and prey (The Leopard and the Cow). Complete with breathtaking photographs, the stories of these real-life inter-species friendships are truly fascinating. The author, Jennifer S. Holland, not only entertains, but also educates with facts about each different animal featured in the book, and exposes the world of animal emotions, something that is usually reserved for humans only.

Unlikely Friendships by Jennifer S. Holland is one of those books that you pass on to others, and one that will definitely bring your mind and heart joy.  A highly recommended read, you will yearn for more cuteness once you are finished!
