Summary
"Have you ever wondered how a crocodile keeps its teeth clean? Or why herons like to sit on the backs of water buffalo? What exactly does a giant blue whale eat to get so big? In 1,001 Creatures, Aino Järvinen and Laura Merz playfully investigate the complex and awe-inspiring world of twenty-six fascinating insects, reptiles, and mammals. With fun facts and captivating illustrations, 1,001 Creatures explores the diversity of the animal world and its ecosystems. Interactive questions allow readers to take their curiosity and imagination off the page and into the real world with prompts to create their own artwork, imitate a camel's unique walk, and discover the ways in which all creatures are connected in the world. Järvinen's humorous style and Merz's unique watercolor illustrations painted from memory using non-traditional materials, enhance the central message that we're all in this together--human, squid, and penguin alike."--
