About the Author:

Ralph Helfer is a well-known Hollywood animal trainer who was one of the first to use affection and kindness to train wild animals. He is the author of The Beauty of the Beasts, and he lives in Los Angeles and Kenya, where he leads safari tours.

From School Library Journal:

Everyone's heard the adage "you can catch more flies with honey"; Helfer demonstrates it as he recounts his affectionate training method for wild animals, a method predicated on love, patience, understanding, and respect. Although his animal adventures illustrate the success of his training philosophy, his love for his animals permeates every aspect of his writing. Laughter and tears go side by side in this book. Readers will howl with merriment at the description of a trip along a California freeway with Helfer and an overheated bear sharing the back seat of a new car driven by a friend who hates animals. They'll weep at the description of an elephant that had been chained to a tree through 20 years of hot summers and cold winters in Vermont. Story after story will hold readers enthralled in this celebration of animals. This is the book to recommend to those who have loved James Herriot, Cleveland Amory, or Lillian Braun. --Pam Spencer, Jefferson Sci-Tech, Alexandria, VA
