Synopsis

Man Gave Names to All the Animals by Bob Dylan

Whimsical and witty, 'Man Gave Names to All the Animals' first appeared on Bob Dylan's album Slow Train Coming in 1979. With Dylan's blessing, illustrator Jim Arnosky has crafted a stunning picture book adaptation of the song that's a treat for both children and adults, with breathtaking images of more than 170 animals. The revered musical legend rarely allows his songs to be illustrated, and Arnosky has done the song proud with a parade of spectacular creatures ready to receive their names - until the surprise ending, when children get to name an animal all by themselves!
