A 209-pound potbellied pig throws herself into traffic to help save her owner, who was suffering a heart attack. A dog steals a loaf of bread from the family pantry and brings it to a young girl confined in bed. A horse stands guard over an injured baby rabbit and refuses to leave until the rabbit is rescued.

These are just a few of the hundreds of true accounts collected in Beauty in the Beasts, a captivating narrative that combines provocative scientific findings with a compassionate understanding of the natural world to show that animals, like humans, can and do choose to do good.

Writes Philip Gonzales, author of The Dog Who Rescues Cats, "Finally von Kreisler is pointing out what's so easy to see, but hardly anyone does: Animals choose to act with incredible honesty, decency, and purpose. Anyone who loves animals will want to read this wonderful book."
