Series: 199 Pictures
By Holly Bathie
A beautifully illustrated book packed with fascinating creatures from around the world for children to discover, from dolphins and dragonflies to tigers, toucans and elephants. Each page features animals from a different part of the world, such as Australian animals, animals in cold places and animals on the farm and in the garden.
Holly Bathie grew up in Devon, where she spent all her time reading rather than going outside in the fresh air. After university, she moved to Oxford to briefly work in the theatre before moving to children’s publishing. Until the age of 7 she wanted to be an acrobat, a lollipop lady, a lawyer or a comedienne before deciding the best job would be to create Usborne books, so she is thrilled to be finally doing it! In her spare time she enjoys all kinds of dancing and performs with an amateur theatre group.
