Review quote

"A tempting compendium of beautifully illustrated animals."
--School Library Journal "Amazing intersection of art and knowledge."
--Michelle Bellah, Copperfield's Books

"The detail and color with the illustrations are meticulous and jaw-dropping. I said it with the last book, and it stands true with this one as well. The book reminds me of Audubon's illustrations and transport you to the different locations these animals would be found. It will certainly capture your child's imagination, engender in them a love of wildlife, and instruct them on animals they might not ever be exposed to otherwise. I cannot recommend this two book series anymore highly, and I firmly believe this collection belongs in every child's library."
--Stuart's Study

"Simply a beautifully illustrated, well written book."
--Nancie Booher, Multnomah County Library

"The accurate representations of the animals from the southern hemisphere really make the book."

"Design wise this book is a gem. Settings, animal pairings, perspectives, and layouts are varied and interesting. The visual appeal is lively and dramatic and page turning. [...] It is never too early to share the vast glory of our great animal kingdom with the youngest generation and to develop an appreciation for the variety that exists. And this book makes it easy and enjoyable to do so. With illustrations that reign sensitivity, the allure of the wild is seductive as well as sincere, promoting a respect for the wilderness."
--New York Journal of Books
