We might think that we understand how remarkable animals are, but this book for readers up to 8 puts nature under a zoom lens to reveal the unbelievably strange and complex textures of birds and mammals. Here's a chance to get a new perspective on the hummingbird, the peacock, the leopard, and the grizzly bear, each possessed of an extravagant yet practical beauty. Pairing hyper-detailed images of unique and colorful feathers and patterned fur coats with fun facts, activities, and brainteasers, this book also briefly surveys the rapid progress of photography from the invention of the Daguerreotype through the age of Instagram.
