Im nächsten Leben, da ist sich Enzo sicher, wird er ein Mensch sein. Deshalb beobachtet der kluge Hund die Welt um sich herum genau – und er kommt zu erstaunlichen Einsichten. Sein großes Vorbild ist Herrchen Denny: Familienvater, Rennfahrer und der zuverlässigste Freund, den ein Hund haben kann. Doch dann gerät Dennys Leben plötzlich aus den Fugen ... Denny und Enzo sind ein unzertrennliches Paar. Enzo liebt sein Herrchen über alles und genießt das entspannte Männerleben, geprägt von ausgedehnten Spaziergängen, lockeren Essensgewohnheiten und den spannenden Geschichten, die Denny von seinem Leben als Rennfahrer erzählt. Daher reagiert Enzo zunächst mit großer Eifersucht auf Eve, in die Denny sich verliebt und die ihr Leben völlig verändert. Doch er ist klug, er arrangiert sich mit Eve, denn er sieht genau, dass Eve für Denny noch wichtiger ist als seine große Leidenschaft, das Autorennen. Als die kleine Zoë geboren wird, begreift er sie nicht als weiteren Eindringling, sondern als Geschenk und schwört sich, sie stets zu beschützen. Eine Weile ist das Glück der vier perfekt. Zufrieden gibt sich Enzo seiner Lieblingsbeschäftigung hin: dem Philosophieren über das Leben der Menschen, ihr Verhalten, ihre Vorlieben und ihre Schwächen. Enzo ist davon überzeugt, dass er in seinem nächsten Leben ein Mensch sein wird, und so versucht er alles zu verstehen, auch wenn er vieles seltsam findet. Doch dann scheint ein Schicksalsschlag Dennys ganze Welt zu zerstören – und Enzo erkennt, worin die Kunst, ein Mensch zu sein, tatsächlich besteht. Enzo.

A gorilla shrewdly sells back a missing key chain to the highest bidder. An orangutan picks a lock to let himself out of his zoo enclosure and two elephants adopt a tag-team strategy to keep their handlers from putting them back into theirs. In The Parrot's Lament, noted environmentalist Eugene Linden offers more than one hundred true anecdotes about animal acts of cooperation, heroism, escape—even tales of deception or manipulation of human beings. Drawing on the first-person experiences of veterinarians, field biologists, researchers, and trainers, Linden has compiled a warmly entertaining and powerfully persuasive argument for animal consciousness that, while not human, far exceeds what humans usually grant animals. Scientifically sound and emotionally compelling, The Parrot's Lament contains remarkable stories that are sure to resonate with animal lovers, turning skeptics everywhere into believers.

From the author of MODOC comes a personal and moving story about the animal that started Ralph Helfer's illustrious career as Hollywood's top animal trainer for more than 30 years. When Helfer began his career training animals, he was shocked by the danger and cruelty that dominated the field. He believed that if he could raise even the most dangerous animal from a young age and raise him in a loving, caring, yet disciplined environment - a process he termed Affection Training - love could be the basis of the animal's training instead of fear. He brought Zamba, then a four-month-old cub, into his home, and his theories proved resoundingly correct. Zamba would go on to star in major motion pictures and on television, but more importantly, a bond developed between Helfer and Zamba that became the most important in Helfer's life. With stories that range from the hilarious to the incredibly sad and poignant, Zamba will give any Lion King fan a new hero and touch every animal lover's heart.

Aristotle characterized the elephant as “the beast which passeth all others in wit and mind” and the animal has long figured in cultural artifacts, even on continents it has never inhabited. Now Elephant provides an engaging look at the elephant’s long legacy. The image of the elephant can be found throughout world cultures as a symbol of intelligence, strength, and loyalty. Wylie draws on a rich array of examples to document that symbolic power, ranging from symbols of the Hindu god of wisdom, Ganesh, to the beloved children’s works Dumbo and Babar the Elephant. Turning to the elephant’s biological history, Wylie describes the three remaining species—the African Bush Elephant, African Forest Elephant, and the Asian Elephant—and the controversial efforts for elephant conservation. With ivory poaching and human encroachment into the animal’s natural habitats, Wylie argues that we face a uniquely poignant conservation crisis in which elephants and humans both unsustainably consume limited natural resources. A compelling new entry in the Animal series, Elephant will be necessary for every animal lover’s bookshelf.
