This A to Z adventure includes fascinating facts about some of the world's most unique creatures, from woolly monkeys and pink dolphins to electric eels, ocelots, jaguars, and more.
On each page, alongside information about each creature, vibrant collage-style illustrations capture the unique look and feel of the Amazon animals.

A special list of facts about the rainforest and its conservation complete this exotic escapade.
