Summary

Amy Gibson takes readers on a fun-filled, fact-packed, romping, stomping, soaring, twirling, growling, smiling animal adventure around the globe. As readers visit habitats ranging from the Arctic to the savanna, from the Amazon to the outback, they will meet an exciting variety of animals, some familiar (like the cheetah) and some maybe not-so-familiar (like the takin). Charming illustrations by Daniel Salmieri make this a must-have for anyone who loves animals, adventure, and laughing out loud.

Excerpts

CrocodileIf you slosh through a bog,it may be worth your while —Stop and pause —Are those jaws?(Or a logwith a smile?)Note: With only their eyes and nostrils above water, crocodiles lie in wait by the riverbank,still as can be. Any resemblance to floating logs ends, however, once they open their mouths.
