Thirty-three incredible stories of animal heroics from the team that brought you Blue Peter Award-winning SURVIVORS

For as long as there have been wars, animals have been out there saving lives. Courageous dogs, cats, birds, horses, and even a bear have shown courage and devotion, and this book tells you their extraordinary stories.
Includes the story of Jet the Alsatian who became a hero of the Blitz, pulling survivors from burning rubble, night after night. Gallipoli Murphy, the donkey who served as an ambulance. Simon, the cat who saved his crew. And many, many more.
These animals help us to remember that not all heroes are human.
Glorious full-colour double-page illustrations throughout.
Praise for the series:
'True-story fans will love this.' Inis Children's Books Ireland
'Full of incredible real-life stories . . . Ultimately an inspirational book, beautifully illustrated.' Angels and Urchins
'A great collection of harrowing, true survivor stories.' Kirkus
