Description

Animals Illustrated mixes fun-filled animal facts suitable for the youngest of readers with intricately detailed illustrations to create a unique and beautiful collection of children’s non-fiction books about Arctic animals. Each volume contains first-hand accounts from authors who live in the Arctic, along with interesting facts on the behaviours and biology of each animal. In this book, kids will learn how wolverines raise their babies, where they live, what they eat, and other interesting information, like how they use their distinctive scent and how they became known as the gluttons of the animal kingdom!

Allen Niptanatiak's profile page

Patricia Ann Lewis-MacDougall is a Hamilton, Ontario, based artist who concentrates mainly on nature, mythology, and her own personal folklore. She grew up surrounded by the woods and farm life of the Niagara Escarpment and uses that as a springboard for her work. Patricia Ann's career started off with animation and then moved into illustration with companies such as Nelvana, Owl Books, Egmont Publishing, Amberwood Animation, The Bradford Group, and Michael Rogers' Inc. When she isn't busy in her studio, you can find her shopping in her beloved Westdale Village, tramping around Coote's Paradise with her husband Larry MacDougall, or playing with her 100-gallon aquarium full of clown loaches and various sucker catfish.
