Inspiring True Stories About Animals

Looking for Miza (Order a copy)
by Juliana Hatkoff, Isabella Hatkoff, Craig Hatkoff , Paula Kahumbu
In a magical place called the Congo, in the beautiful forests and jungles of Virunga National Park, lives a young female mountain gorilla named Miza. She was just like any other baby gorilla, riding on her mother’s back, playing, and taking naps. Then, one day, when Miza and her mother were out searching for food, Miza's mother disappeared, leaving her baby alone and frightened. Miza's father, a fierce silverback named Kabirizi and the leader of Virunga's largest family of mountain gorillas, set out to find Miza.

by Isabella Hatkoff, Craig Hatkoff and Dr. Paula Kahumbu
In the wake of the devastating 2004 tsunami, a baby hippo was left homeless. But, rescued by villagers, Owen the hippo found a new home in a Kenyan wildlife sanctuary. There he made a friend - Mzee, a 130-year-old giant tortoise. Although the two never would have been friendly in nature, you and your reader can see how inseparable they are through heartwarming and adorable pictures that prove truth is more amazing than fiction.


Knut (Order a copy)
by Craig Hatkoff , Juliana Hatkoff, Isabella Hatkoff, Dr. Gerald R. Uhlich
When Knut was first born, he was no bigger than a snowball. His mother was unable to care for him, so a bear keeper at Zoo Berlin, Thomas Dorflein, became Knut's foster father-sleeping next to the little cub, feeding him from bottles, and helping him learn how to play and swim. This is the true story of a little bear who needed a family, and the extraordinary outpouring of love he received from Thomas, from the zoo, and from people all around the world.
