Summary
"The author of the New York Times bestselling I Survived series shares four thrilling true stories of animals who have faced disaster--and come through. You'll meet courageous animals and also inspiring humans who show how we can help protect the creatures who share our precious Earth. Includes real-life stories about: the pigeon hero of World War I; two captured dolphins and the hero who helped them return to the sea; 20,000 penguins saved from an oil spill disaster; two orphaned cheetahs and their unlikely new dad. This fourth book in the I Survived True Stories series is perfect for fans of the I Survived chapter books or anyone who loves stories about animals beating the odds. It's a great choice for reading alongside I Survived the Battle of D-Day, 1944, which features a carrier pigeon character."--Provided by publisher
