"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.

What's New in Version 3.1
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!
