Publisher Review

A wonderful book for children * Western Morning News * The gold-foiled cover gives it an added magical touch as a gift for a little one * The Week Junior * Perfect to dip into and to make you marvel at the wonderful world of animals * Parents in Touch * A substantial reference book from the popular DK range which would make an ideal Christmas gift. * Creative Steps * The pick of the Christmas bunch ... stunning ...illustrated with wonderful quirkiness. * Sunday Business Post * This book is a celebration of animals around the world * Juno * Gilded edges, gold foil details and photo-led spreads make it a delight for children of all ages to flick through and, as with all DK educational books, it's packed full of fascinating facts. * Big Issue North * "An Anthology of Intriguing Animals looks like a superstar. It looks deluxe...best kind of heritage publishing - it's celebratory, but not designed to languish on a shelf." - Imogen Russel Williams * Down the Rabbit Hole Radio Show * A huge green-and-gold animal extravaganza, Ben Hoare's An Anthology of Intriguing Animals integrates wildlife photography with exquisite illustrations [...] Its lively text strikes a perfect balance between the scatological (rhinos leave each other messages in their poo) and the fascinating (hippos secrete a thick pink sweat that acts as sunscreen). * The Guardian *
