The illustrator of Mr. Hare's Big Secret, Hannah Dale here applies her skills to a book for animal lovers of all ages. From fox cub to duckling, hedgehog to barn owl, the 50 baby animals profiled in this little book are depicted in Dale's charming watercolors, revealing her gift for rendering a young animal's irrepressible energy and the loveable scruffiness of their fur or feathers. A zoologist by training, Dale also includes informative yet affectionate texts about these creatures' courtship rituals and how they raise their young.
