1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Brian Griffith TOP 500 REVIEWER on Dec 16 2013
Format: Paperback
A collection of stories about oddball animal friendships, documented with great photos. Among the 47 cases of strange affection, we have a cow snuggling with a wild leopard, a cat with an iguana, sled dog with polar bear, or a cat serving as a seeing-eye guide for a blind dog. This could be a bunch of silly anecdotes, but the collection shows that even fish, birds, and reptiles have quirks of personality that can override instinct, allowing for long-term friendly relations that break every mold. These friendships are like mutations in emotional possibility, which can lead to new social patterns among beasts and people. I suspect our first domestications of animals arose from such oddball friendships between species, which became learned behavior for the future generations of those concerned.

A darling and heartwarming book! June 13 2011
By Jennifer Regan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am an animal lover, and this book made me smile. The stories are so sweet, and the photos are beautiful. There are so many wonderful stories of unexpected animal relationships. This would be a great book as a gift, or just to have around as a pick-me-up. Loved it!

Total delight! June 21 2011
By S. Robertson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a little treasure! It's sweet and charming while being interesting and informative. In addition to my own copy, I'm buying more copies for friends and family members, of all ages. The reaction from people who viewed it so far is extremely enthusiastic, so I'll no doubt end up ordering even more. I am even already hoping there will be a sequel, or at least something along these lines.

Heartwarming, a nice book to read yourself to sleep by June 30 2011
By Wulfstan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Or perhaps read someone else to sleep. Not that the book is soporific or anything. It's just a nice friendly happy read. Something that will bring a smile to your face, a warm feeling to your heart and sweet dreams instead of nitemares.

Some very interesting animal combos in this book including a cat and his buddy the rat, and a leopard who lieth down with a cow. And, another "friends who are natural enemies" tale- a lap dog and a squirrel!

Penned by Jennifer Holland, a well known writer for National Geographic. Truly fabulous and "aaahhh" producing photos, too.

An "awwww" coffe-table book with beautiful photos Jan. 28 2012
By Timothy J. Bazzett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The many colorful photographs of various animals are indeed beautiful, and, together with the brief anecdotes that accompany each section, Jennifer Holland's book does inspire that "awwwww" response that beautiful or cute animals so often do. UNLIKELY FRIENDSHIPS was a gift, certainly not the kind of book I would buy. I read it in less than two hours. The unusual so-called friendships are often stretched from what was more than likely a posed or serendipity photo op, like "The Bobcat Kitten and the Fawn," two unfortunate animals rescued from a wildfire in California. Or "The Mare and the Fawn," an encounter that admittedly lasted only twenty minutes. The truth is the photos are the book's best feature. Many of them will make you smile, they will make you "aww[...]" If you just want a quick "warm and fuzzy" fix, you'll probably appreciate this square, attractively-packaged heavy paperback coffe-table type book. However, if you want a book you can relate to or learn something profound from, naah, not so much. But I'll happily pass it along, maybe to a doctor's or dentist's office waiting room. It's that kind of book.
