Wilderness - Jungle, Rain Forest, Tundra, Taiga, Savanna, and Desert Synopsis

This captivating book brings the natural world into sharp focus. Beautifully coloured and intricately detailed illustrations depict places as exotic and wide-ranging as Senegal's Niokolo- Koba National Park, Russia's Sikhote-Alin mountain range, the Sinharaja Forest Reserve in Sri Lanka, Daintree National Park in Australia, the Mexican desert, and China's bamboo forests. The animals that live in these remote places, cleverly hidden in the trees, plants, and flowers, create a marvellous challenge for young readers to find and identify.

Each spread contains more than twenty different species including birds, snakes, frogs, iguanas, leopards, tigers, gorillas, pandas, and wolves. The back of the book is filled with additional information about the animals and their habitats. Young readers will find much to discover, explore, and learn in this absorbing celebration of our planet and the amazing creatures we share it with.
