"A must-purchase for animal-loving families." —Kirkus, starred review
"An excellent choice for classroom curricula." —Booklist, starred review
Animals smooth and spiky, fast and slow, hop and waddle through the pages of the Caldecott Honor artist Steve Jenkins’s most impressive nonfiction offering yet. Sections such as “Family,” “Predators,” “Animal Senses,” and “Animal Extremes” are filled with vivid animal portraits, fascinating facts, and infographics. Jenkins’s cut- and torn-paper artwork is as striking as ever.
This Multi-Touch ebook edition includes an embedded animal index and glossary as well as interactive elements that create an immersive reading experience. A discussion of the artist's bookmaking process with bonus video content rounds out this bountiful browsers' almanac of more than three hundred animals.
