Woolly Mammoth by Mick Manning

Have you ever wondered what life was like for the Woolly Mammoth? It was very hard!

Includes an illustrated fact strip giving more information on how we know about the lives of mammoths today, taken from the very latest mammoth findings.

Published in association with the Natural History Museum.

A fascinating insight into the lives of these unique creatures. Ibby Link

The drawing is full of character and cleverly integrated with jaunty rhyming text and fact panels. Packs an emotional punch as effective as fiction. Lovely use of colour - The Herald

The sheer variety of ways of communicating all manner of interesting
information is a strong feature of this book - Books for Keeps
