An Anthology of Intriguing Animals by DK steps away from the publisher’s usual format of a glossy cover and pages filled with photographs and spots of text in favor of a beautiful gold-embossed cover and gilded pages. Inside, over 100 animals are highlighted by a single striking photograph accompanied by a realistic drawing. The text is short, factual, and clear, imparting interesting tidbits about each animal. This is a beautiful, informative heirloom book that will provide many hours of entertainment and wonder for any child with an interest in wild animals of the land, sea, and air.
