The Lovereading4Kids comment

Starting with the Arctic tern, which makes the longest migration of any creature, an astonishing 91,600km (57,000 mi) this journal-sized book is full of information on extraordinary feats of the animal world. It describes more amazing migrations, via land, sea and air, and also looks at the way animals have adapted in remarkable ways to survive in inhospitable landscapes. The animals and creatures command the pages in Jessica Courtney-Tickle’s vibrant illustrations, from the awe-inspiring humpback whale to the beautiful monarch butterfly. As non-fiction for children continues to set new standards in imaginative, information-rich design and eye-catching illustration, this is a book that inspires, entertains and enthrals. ~ Andrea Reece
