Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What was that sound? It's the scampering hooves of an antelope trying to avoid the clutches of a hungry cheetah! A male lion smells an intruder — ROAR! Young readers experience the amazing sights and sounds of Africa in this entertaining book. As they explore the Masai Mara, the Serengeti, and the Kalahari, young safari-goers meet a menagerie of safari animals, including favorites like giraffes, elephants, and zebras as well as unusual critters like black mamba snakes, dung beetles, and goliath herons. Maurice Pledger's stunning pop-up panoramas, realistic animal sounds, and an informative field guide make this a book young readers will read again and again.

About the Author

Maurice Pledger is an internationally-acclaimed artist known for his realistic and detailed illustrations of animals and wildlife. He's had no formal art training, but achieves the realism and detail in his beautiful artwork by spending hours in the field observing, sketching and studying his subjects in their natural environment. First published at age 17, he has since had his illustrations featured on greeting cards, prints, gifts, and books. He has created several successful series, including the Peek-and-Find series, the Nature Trails series, and the Pledger Sticker Books. He was the recipient of the 1992 Francis Williams Illustration Award for the Best Descriptive Illustration. This honor is given only once every 5 years by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
