A gorgeously illustrated treasury of children's favourite animals.
Ben Hoare has contributed to many DK titles, including Wildlife of the World and Nature Explorers: Birds.
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 *
"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 *
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 *
This book is a celebration of animals around the world * Juno *
