Ole Könnecke's iconic illustrations provide a feast for the eyes of readers large and small--and I simply loved guessing which region or country each page might represent. Australia was pretty easy! and we share space with our neighbours, New Zealand--unless Kiwis have made it across the ditch!
A world map at the end of the book help kids understand and identify which animals come from where.
Just loverly, loverly, and a welcome large format that little ones can really, almost literally throw their little bodies into.
