In this knockout book of animal photographs, perfect for the youngest animal lover, you'll discover all sorts of things. Did you know that orangutans are "ticklish"? Yes, they are just like you and me. But be careful if you ever see a hippo yawning. It doesn't mean he's sleepy it means he wants to fight.
The gorgeous up-close pictures and fascinating facts are complemented by behind-the-scenes peeks at how animal photographs are taken. (For instance, photographer Steve Grubman once had to lull a cow to sleep with soft music ) Animal lovers, young scientists, and budding photographers will all adore this beautiful nonfiction book.
