When I opened this book, it was nothing like I had expected! I was anticipating another book with a two page spread on each creature - and nothing wrong with that. But this is totally and wonderfully different - it's a veritable menagerie of creatures. By colour - by type - by number - and all illustrated in a way that is reminiscent of old-fashioned zoological drawings; quite superb.
