Budding young naturalists (and artists!) will be fascinated by this book, which provides intriguing information about and stunning cut-paper collage illustrations of a wide variety of colorful creatures in shades of red, blue, yellow, green, orange, purple, and pink. Gloriously lifelike images of animals - from the common yellow wild canary to the exotic green leafy sea dragon or purple long-wattled umbrella bird - are organised by color, and the easily understood text explains the source, purpose, or message of each animal's hue.
