ACHUKA Book of the Day 6 Jul 2021
“There’s lots going on here, and all of it good.” KIRKUS on Crazy About Cats
“the images here are the real star, delivering at least as much information as the words, in exciting ways. The two-page spread called “Hide and Seek” subtly employs color and pattern to demonstrate exactly how camouflage works, with different cats in an amalgamation of different habitats. And the spread on scale — with eight cats lined up beside one another, behind a woman, each identified on a line demarking the tip of the nose — beautifully and clearly makes its point with almost no text at all.” Horn Book on Crazy About Cats
“A vast amount of information on monkeys is expertly delivered in both text and image without patronizing either readers or monkeys—a delight.” KIRKUS on Mad About Monkeys
This is now the seventh book in Owen Davey’s ‘about animals’ series for Flying Eye books, which began with Mad About Monkeys in 2015. Davey is the lead illustrator on the multi-award winning app Two Dots and leads an illustration course on Domestika.
Did you know that crocodiles can live to be over 100 years old, and can climb trees to sunbathe? They can even sense the vibrations from a single drop of water falling from the mouth of a drinking wildebeest over twenty metres away. Sink your teeth into this fascinating illustrated guide to the largest reptiles on Earth, full of juicy facts on crocodile behaviour, biology and myth, and packed with details on how we can live with and protect our scaly companions.
