In this new series, based on real-life animal tales, discover that not all heroes wear capes - some have four legs, a wet nose, and a brave heart. Big or small, fall in love with animal friends who have lived truly wild lives. Read about Sterling, the silly moose, whose love crossed borders. It was the time of disco and flower crowns. The heartbeat of the era reached Sterling, the 1,000 pound moose in his woodsy marsh. His marsh stood by a dairy farm, which was lucky, as Sterling was obsessed with cows. He broke the farmers fence, ran with them in the paddock, and made new friends - he didn't want to leave! But the farmer wasn't so happy with Sterling... Would he find his way back to his beloved cows?

This heartwarming story has a fact section at the back, so you can learn more about big cats and how you can help them. Stunning nature scenes from Laivi Poder will make you want to dive into the page. Also in the series is Onyx, based on the reintroduction of wolves of Yellowstone Park. Fluffles, the koala who held strong through a bushfire. And Talala, the leopard cub who found her own family.
