Dogs and Cats by Steve Jenkins
  

Synopsis

Dogs and Cats by Steve Jenkins

This visually stunning, oversize paperback (with French flaps!) is a dog book ...until you flip it over to make it a cat book. The dog and cat meet in the middle, sharing a cosy rug. Steve Jenkins' cut - and torn-paper collages are exquisite, a fine match for the lively narrative that explores animal characteristics and behaviours as well as the role of cats and dogs in human history. A wonderful, accessible, beautiful way to learn about animal science, and nature from one of the nonfiction greats!

Reviews

Jenkins brings his inimitable ability to clearly present scientific information to this uniquely styled flip-book comparison of dogs and cats: readers can start at one end of the book for DOGS and Cats, or flip the whole thing upside-down to read Dogs and CATS, according to preference. . . . All the information is tied directly to behavior and traits readers can observe in pets, making it easy to remember
