the animal book
Animals smooth and spiky, fast and slow, hop and waddle through the two hundred plus pages of Steve Jenkins' most impressive non-fiction offering yet.
Sections such as 'animal senses', 'animal extremes', and 'The Story of Life' burst with fascinating facts and infographics that will have trivia buffs breathlessly asking, "Did you know a termite queen lays 2,000 eggs at a time?!"
Jenkins' colour-rich cut- and torn-paper artwork is as strikingly vivid as ever. Rounding out this bountiful browsers' almanac of more than three hundred animals, is a discussion of the artist's bookmaking process, an animal index, a glossary, and a bibliography.
