about

Explore the many different ways in which animals move in the wild!A red-lipped batfish waddles across the sea floor on its fins, searching for small sea creatures to eat. Other animals may fly or glide, or jet-propel themselves to get around. These creatures come equipped with legs, wings, or tentacles, and they often move from place to place in surprising ways. In the latest eye-catching escape into the kingdom of Animalia, the Caldecott Honor-winning team of Jenkins and Page show how animals roll, fly, walk, leap, climb, swim, and even flip! This fascinating and fun illustrated nonfiction melds science, art, biology, and the environment together in a detailed and well-researched book about how animals move in our world today.
Steve Jenkins  and  Robin Page,  creators of the Caldecott Honor book  What Do You Do with a Tail Like This?  and many more popular titles, live in Boulder, Colorado. Visit their website at www.stevejenkinsbooks.com.

This is therefore a useful addition to the ever-expanding Jenkins/Page nature study shelves." -Bulletin "? this spectacular arrangement of creatures is delicately rendered in Jenkins' signature, eye-catching collage style. Closing with a list of categories and its accompanying critters, [Flying Frogs and Walking Fish] is highly educational and a treat to behold. -Booklist "
