The Magnificent Book of Animals showcases fascinating mammals from around the world with colorful, oversized illustrations and captivating facts.

Wild and wonderful mammals are everywhere—in the mountains, across the savanna, on the frozen tundra, and high in the trees. The Magnificent Book of Animals features oversized pages with detailed full-color illustrations of 36 of the world's most majestic mammals, including giant pandas, African elephants, polar bears, and ring-tailed lemurs. Concise facts highlight each animal's unique behaviors and abilities, and fact boxes allow the reader to compare each animal's size, habitat, life span, and diet. Rich, authentic illustrations will capture the reader's interest in the magnificent animals that live all across the world. Also includes a full-color poster.

He’s mucked out polar bears and fed the penguins, planted trees in Somerset, surveyed Vietnamese jungle and rescued wildlife from drought in Africa.
