A beautifully illustrated, informative book for children introducing them to a fascinating cast of beasts

In The Big Book of Beasts Yuval Zommer’s wonderful illustrations bring to whimsical life some of the grizzliest, hairiest, bravest, wiliest, and most fearsome beasts in the animal kingdom. Brimming with interesting facts from beast consultant Barbara Taylor, this charming picture book is a beautiful way for parents to introduce young children to the animal world―and for older children to learn by themselves.

In the first pages children learn that beasts are wild animals that can’t be tamed and that they all defend themselves in different ways. As the book continues young readers meet specific beasts, including armadillos, bears, tigers, and the Tasmanian devil. The Big Book of Beasts also approaches the world of beasts thematically, looking at mythical beasts, Ice Age beasts, beasts on your street, and how to save beasts in danger of extinction.

The funny and conversational text, amazing facts, and glorious and quirky pictures will draw in young children over and over again.

About the Author:

Yuval Zommer studied at the Royal College of Art, London. He has worked as a creative director at many top advertising agencies, and has written and illustrated several children’s books, including The Big Book of Bugs, The Big Book of Beasts, and The Big Book of the Blue.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1–3—By no means a comprehensive collection of all things beastly, this book provides an overview of some of the more popular creatures, from baboons and wolves to tigers and bears. (The "big" from the title refers to the large trim size.) The work is split up into just a few sections: "Beastly Families" (animal family tree), "Claws and Jaws" (protection and defense), and "Howls, Growls, and Smells" (communication). Also included is a section on backyard beasts (e.g., black bears and possums). An interactive "Can You Find?" game involving paw prints adds a bit of fun (answers are offered in the back). The illustrations are vibrant and whimsical, and the animals' facial expressions are bound to elicit laughs. VERDICT A cute addition for libraries in search of a browsable compendium or for fans of Zommer.—Kristin Anderson, Bloomingdale Public Library, IL
