Editorial Reviews

Designed to mimic the experience of visiting a natural history museum, this elegant, eye-catching volume explores the animal kingdom through gorgeously detailed pen-and-ink illustrations that resemble vintage taxonomical plates. ... It’s easy to imagine these exquisite images hanging in the gilded hallways of a museum, but unlike a museum, readers can take this experience along with them.—Publishers Weekly (starred review)Part oversized album and part encyclopedia, this "museum" of the animal kingdom showcases its variety and diversity with numerous examples from around the world. What distinguishes this collection from similar overviews is its presentation. The illustrations look like nature prints from long ago, but unlike those old engravings and lithographs, these fine-lined drawings began with pen and ink and were colored digitally. ... Overall, this impressive survey will surprise and please its visitors—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)Readers (children and adults alike) will savor and investigate this visual catalog over and over again. ... A museum in a book, with spectacular colored pen-and-ink drawings, presented in an elegant 11"x15" volume.—Shelf Awareness (starred review)A book that is both restful and, in its way, invigorating. ... With creamy, oversize pages and delicately colored, fine-line drawings of creatures from the natural world ... An elegant volume. ... Ms. Broom's prose is presented in simple modern typeface, which provides a stylish accompaniment to Ms. Scott's exquisite illustrated plates. .... One breathtaking image after another, page after page, makes "Animalium" an ideal portable museum for young naturalists and for the aesthetically demanding grown-ups in their lives.—The Wall Street JournalLarge, stunningly beautiful and filled with pictures of surpassing elegance and detail.—The Wall Street JournalIt's a museum masquerading as a book. Truly original.—People MagazineConsider this oversized encyclopedia a museum visit between two covers. ... Scott’s full-page pen and ink spreads have the timeless elegance of a John James Audubon print, and Broom’s prose moves nimbly between broad facts to curious details. Take, for example, the book’s account of frog metamorphosis.—Science Friday (NPR blog)My personal favorite of the bunch, 'Animalium' is a stunning celebration of biodiversity on Earth and the beautiful creatures that live here. ... The illustrations are works of art, and each gallery includes wonderful facts about the creatures within. This book is perfect for all ages -- I may just want a copy for myself.—The Washington PostFabulously illustrated and chock full of information, the perfect book for the budding biologist or zoologist. A true wonder.—East Bay ExpressA simply stunning volume.—The Buffalo NewsBeautiful.—Milwaukee Journal SentinelGorgeously illustrated.—Courier-Journal
