A gorgeously illustrated treasury of children's favourite animals

This animal encyclopedia with a twist showcases more than 100 animals in close-up detail. Arranged from biggest to smallest, the wildlife of the world is revealed with stunning photography and gorgeous illustrations. The storybook descriptions will delight children and let them discover amazing animal facts, such as why the slow-motion sloth is so sluggish and how the plodding pangolin protects itself from predators, as well as some of the stories and myths surrounding their favourite beasts.

This beautiful modern bestiary lets you find the animals that interest you and uncover new favourites along the way. From lions and butterflies to sharks and spiders there's an animal for everyone in this celebration of the animal kingdom. Every animal is shown both photographically and illustrated, and children will love poring over the detailed images. The index is packed with reference information, including the size and location of each species, and a tree of life shows how the animal groups are connected.

With foil on the cover, gilded edges, and a ribbon for keeping your place, An Anthology of Intriguing Animals makes an attractive gift for any child who can't get enough of wildlife and nature. With engaging information and absorbing images, this book is perfect for children to explore by themselves or for bedtime stories.
Industry Reviews
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 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.
