Publisher Description

A beautiful gift, this is a children's animal encyclopedia with a twist. Alongside interesting facts are the stories and myths behind children's favourite animals as well as incredible pictures and stunning illustrations. Containing more than 100 species, this beautiful modern bestiary will take children through the animal kingdom from the huge whale to the tiny spider.

Discover how the koala got its name or which animal the Ancient Egyptians thought rolled the Sun across the sky. Each page features fun animal facts and detailed close-up photographs for children to pore over, including firm favourites such as dolphins, tigers and butterflies as well more unusual animals such as walrus, lemur and peacock.

A perfect gift for children who can't get enough of animals, wildlife and nature, An Anthology of Intriguing Animals covers animals big and small and feathered and furred and will be a treasured favourite book.

Review

A wonderful book for children Western Morning News The gold-foiled cover gives it an added magical touch as a gift for a little one The Week Junior Perfect to dip into and to make you marvel at the wonderful world of animals Parents in Touch A substantial reference book from the popular DK range which would make an ideal Christmas gift. Creative Steps The pick of the Christmas bunch ... stunning ...illustrated with wonderful quirkiness. Sunday Business Post This book is a celebration of animals around the world Juno Gilded edges, gold foil details and photo-led spreads make it a delight for children of all ages to flick through and, as with all DK educational books, it's packed full of fascinating facts. Big Issue North "An Anthology of Intriguing Animals looks like a superstar. It looks deluxe...best kind of heritage publishing - it's celebratory, but not designed to languish on a shelf." - Imogen Russel Williams Down the Rabbit Hole Radio Show A huge green-and-gold animal extravaganza, Ben Hoare's An Anthology of Intriguing Animals integrates wildlife photography with exquisite illustrations [...] Its lively text strikes a perfect balance between the scatological (rhinos leave each other messages in their poo) and the fascinating (hippos secrete a thick pink sweat that acts as sunscreen). The Guardian
