Amazing Animal Journeys

Philippa Forrester

From mammals to bugs, this colourful book answers so many of those burning questions about where animals go and why. It is packed with facts and figures about a wide variety of animals and their migratory habits. Fact hunters will love the slow migration of the sloth down a tree in order to go to the toilet!! The book covers record breaking flights, plants on the move, hitchhikers and so much more. Perfect for the animal obsessed child and the curious child (or adult). This is a beautiful, engaging book to share. There are some incredible photographs accompanied by maps and illustrations to give a sense of how far these journeys are. Plus there is also a glossary to help the reader understand some of the tricky words.

Review by Y2 pupil, Red House School, Stockton-on-Tees

I like it because it gives you lots of facts and lots of pictures of the animals. Emperor penguins are the tallest and heaviest penguins and polar bears are superb swimmers and can travel long distances in the water. There are so many facts about animals in this book that I can list loads of them! Like this fact that elephant hers are mainly made up of females and their young and the Italian wall lizards are skilled climbers, able to scale walls, rocks and cliffs at height. I learnt so many facts from this book that I am definitely going to buy my own copy!!

Review by Y6 pupil, Whitehall Junior School, Walsall

I love this book because it has amazing facts and wonderful pictures! My favourite page is Wandering Albatross as I learned lots of facts about this bird and I found out it was quite evil! I would recommend this book to people who love insects and other animals. I have given this book 5 stars as I really enjoyed reading this book!
