"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.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 23, 2013 – Jenkins compiles more than 300 animals, using a loosely encyclopedic format with sections covering topics like "Animal Extremes," "Predators," and "Animal Senses." Jenkins's always skillful use of cut- and torn-paper animal artwork appears throughout (several images comes from his earlier books), while factually detailed captions describe each subject, resulting in a vibrant juxtaposition of science and art. Fascinating creatures and characteristics abound: "Most deep-sea creatures cannot see red light. But the spotlight loosejaw can detect it, and it is the bizarre fish's secret weapon." A colossal squid's eye (shown actual size) fills an entire spread, and Jenkins closes out the book with sections on the history of life on earth, additional animal facts, and a discussion of how he goes about creating books. In showcasing the riches and peculiarities of the natural world, Jenkins offers plenty to seize (and satisfy) readers' curiosities. Ages 6 10.

Beautiful art, interesting facts

We have a shorter version of a book (what would you do with a tail like this?) by this same artist and author and my boys love it so I was exited when I saw this book. They love the pictures and all of the facts in this huge volume! If you click on the animals it gives you even more fun facts. Again, I just love the art! This is so fun to read through and look at. A must for any animal or science loving families!
