Description

From as little as the snail to as big as the giraffe, from the thundering mastodon of long ago to the ordinary backyard squirrel of today, the animals in this book inspire our imagination.

Here is a fascinating cornucopia that exudes a whimsical affection and respect for the creatures with whom we share our kingdom.
