Sounds of the Wild: Mythical Creatures (Pledger Sounds) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Far up in the sky, a whinny can be heard — could it be Pegasus gliding high above the clouds? Beneath the lonely moon, there's a distressing howl — surely it's not a werewolf? And what is this screeching coming from a fire — is it a phoenix? Welcome to the extraordinary world of myths and legends where you'll meet glorious griffins, dangerous dragons, and scaly sea serpents! Enchanting and imaginative, Sounds of the Wild: Mythical Creatures is Maurice Pledger at his very best. Each colorful spread is filled with stunning, realistic illustrations and engaging text, while remarkable pop-up panoramas are paired with exciting layered sounds to bring the most fantastic beasts to life. In the air, on the land and in the sea, a mythical world of wonder awaits!

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.
