Produced in association with the Smithsonian Institution, Animal! with its photorealistic, computer-generated images, infographics, and cutaways is a ground-breaking approach to the animal kingdom. A perfect reference for young readers, Animal! lets them get up close to some of the most dangerous animals—including the Komodo dragon and the saltwater crocodile—while learning amazing animal facts about crustaceans, mammals, sea creatures (including orcas, great white sharks, stingrays and more), and such avians as penguins, owls, hawk, eagles. Follow the animal timeline of evolution and extinction to see how they have adapted to survive. Finally each page in Animal! features simple annotations and data boxes. A 32-page reference section helps with unfamiliar terms.
