Publisher Comments:

Animals smooth and spiky, fast and slow, hop and waddle through the two hundred plusand#160;pages of the Caldecott Honor artist Steve Jenkinsand#8217;s most impressive nonfiction offering yet. Sections such as and#8220;Animal Senses,and#8221; and#8220;Animal Extremes,and#8221; and and#8220;The Story of Lifeand#8221; burst with fascinating facts and infographics that will have trivia buffs breathlessly asking, and#8220;Do you knowand#160;a termite queen can produce up to 30,000 eggs a day?and#8221; Jenkinsand#8217;s color-rich cut- and torn-paper artwork is as strikingly vivid as ever. Rounding out this bountiful browsersand#8217; almanac of more than three hundred animals is a discussion of the artistand#8217;s bookmaking process, an animal index, a glossary, and a bibliography. A bookshelf essential!


Award-winning author-illustrator Steve Jenkins offers a visual feast in this rich treasury that explores the world around us and the extraordinary creatures that we share it with!

Brilliant book! Anyone even remotely interested in animals will love this book and share it with everyone they know. My 8year old (who is an avid reader) says this book is one of his favorites! One of the best coffee table books around. DK publishing does it again with their fabulous photos and lots of information. Just can't say enough.
