An Anthology of Intriguing Animals presents each animal in a beautiful 2-page spread that has been crafted with excellent detail down to the background colour and page elements that relates to each critter. The colour and images are crystal clear and we found ourselves admiring the photos for extended periods as I described the features to my daughter.
The descriptions and facts about each animal are well written, interesting and fun to learn about. There isn't a lot of deep content here like a proper encyclopedia would have, but it touches on a few unique highlights of each animal which really shows how different every creature is from one another.
With over 100 animals and hours of enjoyment (and re-enjoyment) I highly recommend "An Anthology of Intriguing Animals". This book makes a great gift for any child and is certainly a very visual and fun way for children to learn about the unique animals that live in our world.

My 7 year old loves researching animals so I bought this for her and she loved it. I even sat with it for an hour reading all the fascinating facts!
I highly recommend this book.

It is beautiful in so many ways. Firstly, each animal in the book is attributed with a stunning photo (that looks more like an incredible drawing), as well as a gorgeous illustration and a piece of writing and the edges of each page are covered in gold leaf which looks amazing when the book is laying on its side.
I have recommended this to so many people and they have felt the same. I originally got this for my 6 year old daughter on her birthday and she absolutely LOVES it, but to be honest it is a book that everyone would enjoy. The only sad this about it is that I hope that we do everything we can in our lifetime to protect these incredible animals that feature in the book, so that they are still around for many more generations to see.
And at this price! It is worth EVERY penny and more!
