Knowledge Encyclopaedia: ANIMAL! (Dorling Kindersley)

With the Dorling Kindersley brand, you know that you're going to get a fantastic packed-to-the-very-gills book of amazing animal knowledge and facts...
In "Knowledge Encyclopaedia: Animal!" you get so much more than that. Using cutting edge state-of-the-art CGI, DK's amazing art team have come up with fabulous new ways to look at animal species you may already know and love, but have never seen in quite such amazing detail as in this fantastic book.

Covering the land, the oceans and the air, "Knowledge Encyclopaedia: Animal!" quickly becomes an invaluable resource reference with unique and engaging presentation to wow kids away from their boring screens, and get them wrapped up in a massively immersive and brilliant book instead.

Each page spread takes a look at animals and their nearest relatives, what they eat, where they live and what they get up to...

Take to the air with a Toucan - but why do they have such huge beaks?
Kids are always brilliant at coming up wth tons of questions about their favourite animals and this book does an absolutely amazing job at answering them, and many many more...

Owch! That's going to leave a mark...
The 3D CGI graphics are quite something, showing the huge advances in rendering animal species that look astonishingly detailed and realistic. One of the high points of the book is just how good those illustrations are but there are tons of photos and drawings to compliment the CGI bits.

Hello beautiful, give us a smile! OK maybe don't then...
We never come away disappointed from the sheer attention to detail and gorgeous presentation of DK titles and this is no exception. If you're after a brilliant book for a Christmas present for your animal-obsessed little ones, this is the one to go for.

Charlotte's favourite bit: Learning all about parrots, parakeets and budgies

Daddy's favourite bit: We expect the very highest standards from DK's amazing non-fiction range and this definitely does not disappoint. A hugely impressive and brilliant animal encyclopaedia that will be a treasure for years to come.
