Heroes of the Animal Kingdom is a beautiful, informative, easy-to-read, illustrated non-fiction title, about animals who have helped humans with the most incredible things, including space travel, saving lives and wars. Animals are an important part of nature and our ecosystem which keeps the planet going. But the animals have also played an important part in our development from cavemen to modern humans.
Throughout the last centuries almost every single progress in medicine, from antibiotics to transplants, has been tested on animals. Some of the first astronauts were furry and had paws. Animals have been more important for the development of humans than most people realise.
Line Renslebråten depicts and tells the story about this part of human – and animal – history in a way not seen before. With care and respect for the animals she’s composed gorgeous pictures and text. This book is a collection of dramatic, touching, and true stories of incredible heroic deeds made by animals.
