Reviews

PRAISE FOR HEROES

"Readers will be heartened to learn of the accolades many of the animals received following their service, and that several enjoyed retirements as pets. " -- Publishers Weekly "Rewarding fare for younger browsers." -- Kirkus Reviews "[HEROES] is more than an 'I Survived' starring animals; these are stories about how we rely on animals to survive and to thrive.... Kerry Hyndman's illustrations are all at once intense and beautiful, and David Long's tributes are filled with respect for these companions. Read with a box of tissues nearby. Give to your animal fans and your adventure story fans." -- Mom Read It PRAISE FOR SURVIVORS "Hyndman's grainy artwork depicts the survivors at the peak moments of danger--19th-century trapper Hugh Glass lunges at an attacking grizzly bear with his knife, surgeon Leonid Rogozov peers down at his abdomen, giving himself a necessary appendectomy at a polar research station. While offering excitement and peril, Long's riveting narratives also provide insight into how these individuals used their skills, knowledge, and fortitude to survive. " --Publishers Weekly "Each of the 23 accounts seems more jaw-dropping than the one before, and all are testaments to the human spirit. The handsome, oversize volume is enhanced by Hyndman's single- and double-page illustrations. While appealing to all readers, this will have special interest for reluctant ones."--Booklist "The attractive design features a full-page or double-page-spread color illustration depicting a pivotal moment in each well-told story.... A great collection of harrowing, true survivor stories."--Kirkus Reviews "Thrilling accounts of peril that are sure to draw in casual readers."--School Library Journal
