Our world is filled with extraordinary diversity, from amoebas to zebras, from tiny toadstools to giant oaks. The wonders of the natural world are on display in The Animal Book. This guide to life on our planet is packed full of information about creatures big and small. This tome is structured according to scientific classification, with straightforward explanations of more than 1,500 specimens, each stunningly photographed.
