Jenny Broom: Animalium, illustrated by Katie Scott
A page-turning introduction to the wonders of the natural kingdom. This portable "museum" of natural history uses an illustration style reminiscent of the Age of Discovery, and this sense of new discovery is strengthened in rich, modern colouring. Gorgeous artwork and stimulating text make this a timeless addition to a child's library. Animalium would also serve as a valuable gift to any animal lover.
