About This Book
Some animals have special skills that humans don't have, like an excellent sense of smell. Others can do many of the same things humans can do, which means they can help people who struggle with basic tasks. This book features three very different animals and their amazing abilities:
• A Labrador that sniffs out dolphins and whales in danger
• A capuchin monkey that helps its paralyzed owner
• A rat trained to find dangerous land mines
The book also tells the stories of the people who train these super-smart animals to save and improve lives.
Packed with excitement and surprise, this compelling nonfiction book is impossible to put down.
