Alma couldn't get enough of this book. We checked it out from the library, and I felt bad returning it. I intend to get him a copy for Christmas this year (which is why it gets a 5 instead of a 4). It really is like a full set of DK Eyewitness animal books in concentrate form. They did some things to play with the standard format, like having a variety of design templates instead of just the standard white background that works so well for them.
Children will love the large pictures, information boxes, and two page spreads on a wide range of intriguing animals. The pictures alone would justify the cost of this book.

This book has some good information, however, if you read carefully you will notice some inconsistencies with their information. Eg. How fast can the Sailfish swim has three different numbers. 1. Faster than a sprinting cheetah (65-70 mph).. so faster than that 2. maximum of 65 mph 3. Fastest clocked @ 62 mph. So which on is it? That is a difference of 7-9 mph. As the book moved along the Sailfish got slower.
