Believe it or not, two years ago the New York Times Sunday Book Review published a review of several books on interspecies friendships.
In "Can't We All Just Get Along?," author Sarah Ellis writes:
"What is it that so appeals to us about implausible animal cooperation? We humans seem to have a great hunger for the wolf to dwell with the lamb. Is this a vision of paradise? An alternative to our deep-seated fear that we are all either predator or prey? Whatever is at work, it is evident that we find stories of interspecies relationships deeply satisfying and that we are eager to present these to children."Thanks to Andrea for sending this.
