1 Review

Each spread in this dramatically oversized book displays 30 or more different animals in thought-provoking thematic groupings: Large and Small, Hot Weather, Cold Weather, Feathered, Horned, Spots and Stripes, Friends of Mankind, and so forth. The illustrations are robust, graphic prints that will catch the eye--and the large selection of over 350 different species will make absorbing reading. Includes four pages of informational notes.

Zoo-ology, by Joelle Jolivet is a great first animal encyclopedia.
This wonderfully over-sized book at nearly 45cm high, is big, bold, beautiful and packed with animals. Each double spread has a
theme – cold, horned, in the sea and so on. It is the kind of book that a child will spend hours examining, again and again. I particular love the way the animals are not limited to the more familiar – whilst these are represented so are green-eyed tree frogs and tarsiers!
We also enjoy looking through the pages for the chameleon hidden on each one.
