Take a fresh look at the world from an animal's perspective.

In this fun flap-filled book, you'll learn how smell plays a key role in the lives of animals and shapes their behavior and relationships. Each flap reveals the hidden side to each environment only perceptible through smell. Watch a polar bear track its prey beneath the ice, join a column of marching ants, and learn how to say hello to a family of forest piglets.

Anything is possible when you follow your nose
