If you feel overwhelmed by the size of this book like I was at first, please don't be. It's a magical experience with each page you turn.

Terrific! Lovely and often unexpected pairings of animals with just the right touch of elucidation. Totally absorbed my daughter and I for a few hours on a Saturday afternoon.
