Vibrant and bold, up close and personal, the Pop-Up Creatures
series presents photos of wild animals in their natural habitats, as captured by Frans Lanting, National Geographic
photographer extraordinaire. Clever clues and zoomed-in photos hint at whom is hiding beneath the pop-up pages and ask Who Am I?” With each page turn, a bright, colorful photograph pops up for a 3-D animal experience. The Creature Features” section includes names, habitats, diets, sizes, and extra fun facts about each animal.
Whether a bold red or stunning ochre, the gazes of these wild animals are undeniably captivating. Tigers roar, impalas leap, and frogs perch across the pages for a fun, fact-filled experience.
