Exploring hidden aspects of the animal kingdom, this oversized picture book brims with photo-realistic illustrations and descriptions of some of Earth’s most interesting creatures and their unique abilities. Most useful for fostering a budding interest in animals with older children, the book examines hidden elements of nature in both a literal sense—such as the camouflage of the chameleon—and the figurative, like the process of convergent evolution. Younger children will enjoy the illustrations, which bring them face-to-face with everything from toads to lions.
