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!
