Synopsis

Flying Frogs and Walking Fish by Steve Jenkins, Robin Page

A red-lipped batfish waddles across the sea floor on its fins, searching for small sea creatures to eat. Other animals may fly or glide, or jet-propel themselves to get around. These creatures come equipped with legs, wings, or tentacles, and they often move from place to place in surprising ways. In the latest eye-catching escape into the kingdom of Animalia, Caldecott Honor-winning team Jenkins and Page show how animals roll, fly, walk, leap, climb, swim and even flip.

Reviews

* -As usual, Jenkins's collages capture the animals

.---Publishers Weekly, STARRED review* -This fine overview is destined to be a popular addition to any science collection.---School Library Journal, STARRED review -...the featured animals are well chosen for diversity and interest, and the locomotion methods are startling and intriguing. This is therefore a useful addition to the ever-expanding Jenkins/Page nature study shelves.---Bulletin -...this spectacular arrangement of creatures is delicately rendered in Jenkins

-catching collage style. Closing with a list of categories and its accompanying critters, [Flying Frogs and Walking Fish] is highly educational and a treat to behold.--Booklist
