This unique book opens a window on to the lives of animals from different habitats around the world, namely the Amazon rainforest, the North American Rockies, European scrubland, African savanna and the forests of Asia. The book introduces the animals of each biome in the flat spreads, and then tells their stories in the five multi-layered spreads, which are made up of either two or three flaps. Each scene works in tandem with sound effects - activated upon lifting the final layer - to bring each habitat to brilliant life. The book features wild creatures including mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, insects and arachnids.
