Editorial Reviews

"Concise, conversational and informative paragraphs describe each animal and are surrounded by appealing photographs, plus many sidebars that provide additional material and fast facts that include size, habitat, diet, and strange but true. Sharing his many first-hand experiences while capturing these winning images, he also allows that the realities of doing what he does can be dangerous. It's perfect for browsing, and sharing with friends. Readers will be especially attracted to the many baby animals featured."
