Up Close : A life-size look at the animal kingdom, Hardback Book

Up Close : A life-size look at the animal kingdom Hardback

Illustrated by Dawn Cooper

Hardback

Description

Did you know that the world's biggest tongue belongs to the blue whale? Or that the snub-nosed monkey's nostrils point upwards, and when it rains it makes them sneeze?

From paws to claws, tongues, teeth, tails and more, compare the biggest and the smallest animals (and all the others in between) in this illustrated exploration of creatures and their features. Includes stunning 'UP CLOSE' pages, which take a life-size look at a particular feature of two very different animals.

See the mighty elephant's trunk (it can grow as long as a bathtub!) and compare it to the sensitive snout of an elephant shrew.

Study the bristly tongue of a penguin and see how different it is to the stretchy, long tongue of a salamander.

Written by science writer and children's book author Isabel Thomas, with beautiful illustrations by Dawn Cooper, this absorbing book will delight and educate young animal lovers aged 6+.
