How Animals Work Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Have you ever wondered how fish breathe underwater, how caterpillars transform into butterflies, why deer grow cumbersome antlers every year, or how snakes slither?

How Animals Work explains the structures and systems of animal bodies, using photographs and diagrams to show how animals use their anatomy to move, communicate, hunt, and feed, and how their bodies enhance their chances in the struggle for survival.

Review:

"This beautifully photographed encyclopedia of animals is divided into categories that include movement, diet, senses, and animal families. Striking spreads capture animals in action, such as an elephant giving itself a dust bath and a kingfisher catching a fish, while sections focused on topics like breathing and circulation provide insight into lesser-known creatures such as oxygen-diffusing sea butterflies. Diagrams showing internal organs and intimate closeups of eyes, skin, fur, and wings, should engage budding biologists. Ages 8 — up. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
