This beautifully photographed encyclopedia of animals is divided into categories that include movement, diet, senses, and animal families. Striking spreads capture animals in action, such as an elephant giving itself a dust bath and a kingfisher catching a fish, while sections focused on topics like breathing and circulation provide insight into lesser-known creatures such as oxygen-diffusing sea butterflies. Diagrams showing internal organs and intimate closeups of eyes, skin, fur, and wings, should engage budding biologists. Ages 8–up. (July)
