The Big Book of Beasts

Written by Yuval Zommer

The Big Book of Beasts Synopsis

WINNER of the 2018 4-11 Picture Book Awards (Non-Fiction 4-7 category) Nominated for the 2018 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal This book opens with introductory spreads explaining that beasts are wild animals that can't be tamed and gives tips on how to spot them in their natural habitats. Subsequent spreads, illustrated with scenic compositions, are dedicated to specific beasts, including armadillos, bears, tigers and the Tasmanian Devil. Later spreads approach the world of beasts thematically, looking at mythical beasts, Ice-Age beasts, beasts on your street and how to save beasts in danger. The text is chatty, funny and full of amazing facts.
