With creature names like "star-nosed mole," "harpy eagle," and "shoebill stork," intrigue begins at page one. This talented author/illustrator duo introduces one animal at a time, close-up, asking one question that every reader would ask based on colorful, textured, paper-cut illustrations that cleverly-highlight a peculiar feature. Conversational, one to three-sentence answers satisfy curiosity and are supplemented by a well-rendered graphic on the closing pages. Silhouettes of every animal—proportionately-sized side-by-side—along with keyhole-sized maps displaying habitats help readers grasp large-scale context. Masterful nonfiction.
