Publisher Comments:

See the wild lives of animals in this stylish picture book.

Did you know that crocodiles cry while they eat? Or that polar bears turn green if they stay hot for too long? Or that bees do a dance to speak to one another? See wildlife as youve never seen it before with Paul Thurlbys menagerie of curious animals. With unique and humorous artwork thats so stylish youll want to remove it from the book and hang it on your wall, Paul Thurlby brings to life twenty-three animals in a way that will appeal to readers of all ages.

Review:

"Following Paul Thurlby's Alphabet, the eponymous artist weds a cartoon aesthetic with a graphic-art style in handsome compositions that feature anthropomorphic animals in weathered, faux-vintage illustrations with the feel of offbeat WPA posters. Facts about the animals appear beneath each illustration: 'Kangaroos balance on their tails to kick with both feet,' writes Thurlby, as a kangaroo wearing a fierce expression and a karate uniform performs a move against a green graph-paper backdrop. The boldly styled animals — which include a disco-dancing bee, a bear sitting on a toilet in the woods, and a crocodile wiping away tears as it gnaws on a human leg — offer quirky fun on each page. Ages 5 — up. Agent: Jean Sagendorph, Mansion Street Literary Management. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
