5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasing gift
I sent this book to my young grand-daughter in Australia for her birthday, knowing that she was very fond of animals. I hear from her that she was absolutely delighted with it.

Hence, an ideal present for a child interested in animals.

For a book to be classified as an animal encyclopedia it must by definition be comprehensive and complete and pass my takin test.In both these it fails as it only deals with wild animals and excludes the takin (Budorcas taxicolor-the national animal of Bhutan).

Book received promptly and in good condition. Purchased as children's gift for Christmas. Not read personally, so cannot review. Flicked through and publication appeared most informative.

This review is from: The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Animals of the World: An Expert Reference Guide to 840 Amphibians, Reptiles and Mammals from Every Continent (Hardcover)
For a book to be classified as an animal encyclopedia it must by definition be comprehensive and complete and pass my takin test.In both these it fails as it only deals with wild animals and excludes the takin (Budorcas taxicolor-the national animal of Bhutan).
After an introduction dealing with understanding animals there is a directory of animals divided for some strange reason into a)the Americas b)Europe and Africa and c)Asia and Ausralasia There are short essays on 840 animals with map,distribution,habitat,food,size,breeding and an illustration.
Adequate but there are much better books.

This review is from: The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Animals of the World: An Expert Reference Guide to 840 Amphibians, Reptiles and Mammals from Every Continent (Hardcover)
I bought this book for my 6 year old daughter who loves reference books. This would also be suitable for adults as it is very comprehensive and would make a great addition to any home reference family library. It is a lot smaller in size than the sea life one we already own being roughly novel sized rather than A4 sized.
