|Author:||Dieter Braun (Illustrator); Jen Calleja (Translator)|
Famous German illustrator Dieter Braun offers his readers an accurate representation of animals from the southern hemisphere in this gorgeously illustrated volume.

"Simply a beautifully illustrated, well written book."-Nancie Booher, Multnomah County Library "Amazing intersection of art and knowledge."-Michelle Bellah, Copperfield's Books "The detail and color with the illustrations are meticulous and jaw-dropping. I said it with the last book, and it stands true with this one as well. The book reminds me of Audubon's illustrations and transport you to the different locations these animals would be found. It will certainly capture your child's imagination, engender in them a love of wildlife, and instruct them on animals they might not ever be exposed to otherwise. I cannot recommend this two book series anymore highly, and I firmly believe this collection belongs in every child's library."-Stuart's Study
