Description

Tails for swimming, tails for balancing, tails like flags that lead the way. In Whose Tail Is This? Some of the world's most fascinating tails are on display in all their bushy, scaly, or waggly glory. Following the same formula children loved in the previous seven books in his animal series, in Whose Tail Is This? Wayne Lynch asks children to identify everything from beluga whales to chameleons from up-close pictures of just their tails. With each turn of the page, a vivid color photograph of the entire animal is revealed. Accompanied by fun-filled facts and intriguing text, Whose Tail Is This? Captivates young readers and introduces them to birds, animals, and reptiles from around the world.
