About this book

An ideal Valentine's Day gift for that special person in your life, Mates for Life is an affectionate and amusing look at our neighbours in the animal kingdom who opt for the monogamous relationship. The message clearly is: if they can do it, why can't we? Stunning colour illustrations depict cuddly cute couples in their natural habitats – designed to melt even the most hardhearted valentine, while informative text describes their mating rituals, the often elaborate display of feathers or fur, the special relationship the couples enjoy, their relationship with their offspring, plus fascinating facts about the species. Gibbons and guinea fowl, wolves and warblers, swans, skinks and seahorses, angel fish, beavers, voles and vultures are just a few of ensemble of creatures that prove that devotion to one partner is a way of life we should aspire to.
