An Anthology of Intriguing Animals

An Anthology of Intriguing Animals is a really beautiful book. Each page has a gilded edge and is designed with beautiful illustrations, a close-up image of the animal and an easy-to-read introduction to the animal.

Children who love animals will adore this book.  My children do – and I love it too because it is so visually appealing.

More than 100 animals have been included and the images are so detailed you can see individual hairs and scales on the animals.

Children will be able to keep their place easily in the book with the attached ribbon bookmark.

Some of the intriguing animals included are:

  • Tiger
  • Raccoon
  • Quokka
  • Owl
  • Milk Snake
  • Giraffe
  • Butterfly
  • Baleen Whale

You can get a look inside and a close-up view of these pages here: An Anthology of Intriguing Animals.

This book also includes a stunning visual index for the animals at the very end. Illustrations of each animal are provided, in the order they appear in the book. The name of the animal, page number, Latin name, what group they are classified in, their length and the location they can be found in in our world.

An illustrated Tree of Life is also provided. The categories included are Reptiles, Birds, Fish, Mammal, Amphibians and Invertebrates.

An Anthology of Intriguing Animals is such a beautifully designed book. From cover to cover it is visually appealing with it’s lovely close-up images, pretty illustrations and graphics and thick gold-edged pages. This is a lovely book to include in your child’s library.
