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 distinctive characteristics with precision and attention to detail, while a closing spread offers notable tidbits about the animals within. 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 signature, eye-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
