We all recognize an elephant or a bear when we see one. But how much do we really know about these incredible animals? This lively series takes young readers to the heart of the jungle, across the plains, and out to sea to explore the lives of these wildlife stars. Each volume examines the anatomy and special skills of its subject, as well as its habitats, diets, and hunting strategies. Remarkable insights into family and social interactions and compelling discussions about the often precarious future faced by each animal round out each volume.
