Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This visually stunning natural history book brings the animal kingdom closer than you've ever seen it before.

Dramatically close-up images of animals from insects to reptiles to mammals to birds reveal spectacular patterns and shapes. The colors, textures, and structures of all parts of an animal are presented in breathtaking photographs, challenging the reader's understanding of animals and their habitats.

Review:

Staying away from the familiarly fluffy and cute, Animals Up Close features creatures that are little enough to hold in your hands but better examined through these strange and beautiful images. The burrowing owl might bite a finger off, a grass snake might release a terrible odor, and others, like the golden-headed lion tamarin, just need to have their shrinking habitats protected.

Review:

"Each profile is packed with fascinating drama." Booklist

Synopsis:

Biologist Siwanowicz utilizes macro photography to bring the animal kingdom to life closer than ever before. From insects and reptiles to mammals and birds, this visually stunning book zooms in on animals' colors, textures, and structures. Full color.

Cathy from Olympia, Washington, October 20, 2010 (view all comments by Cathy from Olympia, Washington)
WOW! DK has outdone itself with this visually stunning book of animal, insect and spider closeups. From the Goliath bird eater [aka tarantula] and "mantis mealtime" to the ultra-cute spiky hedgehog, there are critters in here to please everyone [though be prepared-- creepy crawly things are particularly well represented-- the squeamish might want to skip the scorpion mother for example!] Not only would this be a great gift for a budding entomologist, or any child who enjoys animal/insect closeups, the book would also be a HUGE hit in an elementary school library and would constantly be checked out.
