Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Unlikely Friendships is the phenomenal New York Times bestseller that's spent 44 weeks on the list and has 615,000 copies in print.

And stories of orphaned animals who have found family-like ties in unexpected combinations, like the elephant who's bonded with sea lions, goats, and other animals...
