Synopsis

Deserts by

Take a journey through dry deserts and discover some of the strange mammals, reptiles and insects that survive in these tough habitats. Huge ears, crafty camouflage and acrobatic abilities are just some of the special features these creatures have to help them hunt for food and stay alive. All these animals have bodies that are adapted to this unique habitat. What Animals Live Here? is a series of four books that explore four of the Earth's most interesting biomes and the variety of animals that live in them. Readers will encounter some familiar and some strange mammals, fish, reptiles, birds, insects and other invertebrates and learn about some of their incredible adaptations that mean they can survive in these environments. Short and simple blocks of text make these perfect books to dip into at random or read from cover-to-cover for readers aged 5+.
