Kids can discover the animal kingdom like never before in this beautiful encyclopedia, featuring over 100 incredible creatures, from the grey wolf and green anaconda, to the bald eagle and emperor penguin. Packed with facts and illustrations, it also explores our relationship with these animals and how we're affecting their lives and habitats, like elephants hunted for their tusks in Africa and reindeer helping Arctic communities deliver food and supplies.
Animals are all around us, but sometimes we forget just how remarkable they are. In The Animal Book, we take a look at some of the world's most diverse and fascinating mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects and invertebrates, from those you can spot in your back garden, to more endangered species in jungles, deserts and freezing oceans.
Dawn Cooper's wonderful illustrations are combined with fantastic photographs and expert authorship by Ruth Martin.
