Summary "This is the first in a series of four books that explore unexpected animal bonds. In this book you'll meet four unlikely pairings, including Billy and Lilly. Billy the boxer adopted Lilly the goat when she was abandoned by her mother. Billy and Lilly are rarely apart since Billy has taken on the role of Lilly's protector, caretaker, and constant companion. This and the other stories in this book will enchant readers and empower them to devour the more text-heavy "grown up" style of the book, while still keeping the story easily digestable for a hestitant reader"-- Provided by publisher.
"In Best Friends Forever, you'll meet four unlikely pairs that prove love knows no bounds. There's Suryia and Roscoe, the orangutan and dog swim buddies; Owen the baby hippo and his hero tortoise Mzee; Koko, the gorilla that speaks sign language and loves her kitties; and Jasmine, who befriends anyone that needs a helping hand. These true stories will amaze, inspire, and make you say "awww.""-- Provided by publisher.
