Paul Thurlby's Wildlife by Paul Thurlby

Did you know that crocodiles cry while they eat? Or that polar bears turn green if they stay hot for too long? Or that bees do a dance to speak to each other? See wildlife as you've never seen it before with Paul Thurlby's menagerie of curious animals. Each page shows a well-known animal in a strange-but-true scenario. With his uniquely humourous artwork that's so achingly stylish you want to rip it from the book and hang it on your wall, Paul brings to life 24 animals in a way which will appeal to readers of all ages.

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
