|aThis visually stunning, oversize paperback (with French flaps!) is a dog book ...until you flip it over to make it a cat book. The dog and cat meet in the middle, sharing a cosy rug. Steve Jenkins' cut - and torn-paper collages are exquisite, a fine match for the lively narrative that explores animal characteristics and behaviours as well as the role of cats and dogs in human history. A wonderful, accessible, beautiful way to learn about animal science, and nature from one of the nonfiction greats!
Are you a cat lover? A dog person? Either way, this book is for you! Read about how your favorite companion came to be a pet and how its body works. Then, flip the book over and find out about the other kind. Once again Steve Jenkins takes children’s nonfiction to a new level. Here is an amazing book filled with great information, visual facts, and lots of animal history. The illustrations are so incredibly realistic, you’ll want to pet them!
