Booktopia Comments

A very beautiful hardcover book that is perfect for any school child for school projects or general interest in animals. Fabulous photos and comprehensive text. You wouldn't expect anything less from DK, their books always first class. It would also be suitable for children under 9 years of age, no doubt they will love the photos, it is a great look and point book for the kids to learn the names of the animals.

Book Description

This extraordinary book gives you a unique opportunity to "meet the family". Come face to face with the ferocious, the timid, the awe-inspiring and the bizarre.

200 million years ago Morganucodon took the final step away from its reptile ancestors to parent all the incredible creatures we now know as mammals - including ourselves. Mammal brings this cast of thousands together so you can meet everyone from the polar bear to the tree kangaroo, the chipmunk to the killer whale.

Each mammal is the way it is because it has to adapt to survive in its environment - whether it runs fast or has thick skin to deter predators, can survive days without water or has evolved for extreme cold or heat. The book takes you on a world tour through each main habitat on each continent, introducing you to the key mammal residents as you go.

Expertly written and visually breathtaking, Mammal gives you unparalleled insight into the lives of this most fascinating of animal groups.
