Description

The cheetah may be the fastest land mammal, but is it the fastest animal of all? Or does the award go to a soaring bird, slithering snake, or sailing fish? The fourteen animals presented in "Who's Faster?" span a range of speeds, from the slow crawl of a sloth to the breakneck blur of the fastest animal in the world. With lyrical text, author Eileen Meyer describes each animal's unique movement and then asks readers, "Who's faster?" Kids won't be able to stop turning the pages until they find out who's fastest. Beautiful watercolors by award-winning illustrator Constance Bergum capture each animal's graceful movement and include intricate details of hooves, whiskers, fins, and feathers. An appendix provides more information about each animal.
