Description

After exploring one of the coldest places on Earth, Debbie S. Miller travels to one of the hottest places, to introduce readers to the variety of animals who call the desert home and show the ways they have adapted to survive temperatures as high as 120 degrees. Creatures such as the sand goanna and red kangaroo have fascinating and unique coping mechanisms for keeping it cool at these extreme temperatures. Miller's expert research and accessible writing will captivate readers as Jon Van Zyle's signature illustrations beautifully depict these animals and their desert habitat.
