Balto the sled dog raced over the Arctic to bring life-saving medicine to an Alaskan town stricken with diphtheria. Sugar, an ordinary house cat with an extraordinary sense of direction, traveled 1,500 miles on a cross-country odyssey in search of her human family. And Koko stunned the scientific world by learning sign language--and told us what it's like to be a gorilla.

These are just a few of the inspiring, true-life stories of ten remarkable animals and the feats that made them famous, as only acclaimed naturalist and Newbery Award–winning author Jean Craighead George could tell them. Now available in a chapter book edition featuring beautiful line art by Donna Diamond, here is an irresistible collection for newly independent readers.
