Shh . . . do you hear that? It's the scampering hooves of an antelope trying to avoid the clutches of a hungry cheetah! A male lion smells an intruder — ROAR! Curious kids can experience the amazing sights, and sounds!, of Africa in Sounds of the Wild: Safari, the magnificent new book from acclaimed illustrator Maurice Pledger. As they explore the Masai Mara, the Serengeti, and the Kalahari, kids will meet a menagerie of safari animals, including favorites like giraffes, elephants, and zebras as well as unusual critters like black mamba snakes, dung beetles, and goliath herons. Sounds of the Wild: Safari combines exciting animal sound effects with stunning pop-up panoramas and an informative animal field guide for a truly wild learning experience. Hey, who snorted? It wasn't me — it was the hippo!
Maurice Pledger is an internationally-acclaimed artist known for his realistic and detailed illustrations of animals and wildlife. He's had no formal art training, but achieves the realism and detail in his beautiful artwork by spending hours in the field observing, sketching and studying his subjects in their natural environment. First published at age 17, he has since had his illustrations featured on greeting cards, prints, gifts, and books. He has created several successful series, including the Peek-and-Find series, the Nature Trails series, and the Pledger Sticker Books. He was the recipient of the 1992 Francis Williams Illustration Award for the Best Descriptive Illustration. This honor is given only once every 5 years by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
