PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Offer runs from 5th December 2023 to 31st July 2024. Lowest 30 day price will be £10.00 from 5th January. Discover the joyful, poignant, inspiring and hilarious stories of 100 noteworthy creatures. A heart-warming collection mixes cats, dogs, and horses with pigeons, primates and even a giraffe. Selected and told by Clare Balding (b.1971), the stories highlight famous – and sometimes infamous – animals who have each been extraordinary in their own way or beaten incredible odds. Including Alexander the Great’s horse Bucephalus and Barry the St Bernard Hospice Dog saving lives in the 19th century Swiss Alps, most stories span the 20th century to the early 2010s. Meet life-saving canaries, crime-solving canines, mine-sweeping dolphins, a naval pig, a very badly-behaved honey badger, and more. From PDSA Dickins Medal winners, an award instituted in 1943; to Paul, the octopus oracle who made his name predicting World Cup match results in 2010. With photographs and personal reflections from the author, this book
will delight animal lover’s great and small.
