Lonely Planet and Ruth Martin

illustrated by Dawn Cooper

Get ready for a walk on the wild side through every continent on Earth!
Kids can discover the animal kingdom like never before in Lonely Planet Kids' The Animal Book , a beautiful encyclopedia featuring over 100 incredible creatures, from the grey wolf and green anaconda, to the bald eagle and emperor penguin. Packed with facts and illustrations, it also explores our relationship with these animals and how we're affecting their lives and habitats, such as reindeer helping to deliver food for Arctic communities and elephants hunted for their tusks in Africa.
Animals are all around us, but sometimes we forget just how remarkable they are. With The Animal Book , kids can discover some of the world's most diverse and fascinating mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects and invertebrates, from those they can spot in their backyard to more endangered species in jungles, deserts and freezing oceans. They'll also learn about conservation efforts and how to help protect wildlife and the planet.
Dawn Cooper's wonderful illustrations are combined with fantastic photographs and expert authorship by Ruth Martin.
Organized by continent, The Animal Book covers:
• Arctic • North & Central America • South America • Europe • Africa • Asia • Oceania • Antarctica • Oceans
