If you were an astronaut traveling far out in space and you looked at the earth, what would you see? A small ball in the huge black universe. That's where these pictures begin.

Synopsis:

From the scarlet ibis to the blue-tongued skink, Jenkins depicts a whole world of colorful animals in his signature style. The animals range from old favorites like the pink flamingo, to rare and fascinating creatures such as the long-wattled umbrella bird and the ringed caecilian. He explores the reasons for each animal's bright colors, from attracting a mate to camouflage. This book is fun, fascinating, and beautiful!
