See the wild lives of animals in this stylish picture book.
Did you know that crocodiles cry while they eat? Or that polar bears turn green if they stay hot for too long? Or that bees do a dance to speak to one another? See wildlife as you’ve never seen it before with Paul Thurlby’s menagerie of curious animals. With unique and humorous artwork that’s so stylish you’ll want to remove it from the book and hang it on your wall, Paul Thurlby brings to life twenty-three animals in a way that will appeal to readers of all ages.
Paul Thurlby’s graphic style has gathered a great deal of attention. He is the author and illustrator of Paul Thurlby’s Alphabet, as well as a regular contributor to British newspapers the Guardian, the Times, and the Independent, among others. He lives in London.
Deceptively simple at first glance—or even first reading—this collection of short phrases paired with bold illustrations and basic facts rewards close examination...Wordplay, visual jokes and strong design combine to create another winner for Thurlby—and readers.
