The Lovereading4Kids comment

This animal guide book takes an unusual approach: it is presented in the form of a scrapbook completed by the author Louis Thomas as he travelled the world studying wildlife, and he and his friend Joe appear on lots of the pages interacting with animals (a note warns children not to try this at home!). Their enthusiasm for the various creatures shines through, and the book has a very warm and engaging tone. The watercolour and ink illustrations are very appealing too and often show Louis and Joe in some unusual situations! A quirky information book that is lots of fun to read, as well as being full of interesting facts. ~ Andrea Reece
