Animals Illustrated mixes fun-filled animal facts suitable for the youngest of readers with intricately detailed illustrations to create a unique and beautiful collection of children's books on Arctic animals. Each volume contains first-hand accounts from authors who live in the Arctic, along with interesting facts on the behaviours and biology of each animal.
In Walrus, kids will learn about how walruses raise their young in the cold Arctic ocean, what they eat, and where they can be found, along with other interesting information, like the fascinating uses for their characteristic tusks.
“. . . [I]t’s the uncommon info, like which bulls can be a threat to boats and how walrus meat is prepared by the Inuit, that makes Herve Paniaq’s Walrus distinct.”
“The endpapers, as well, use illustrations to full effect to convey information.”
“. . . [M]ake a wonderful addition to library shelves, and should be there for those kids who love to learn about new and not always common animals.”
“A good first look at walruses.”
