About this book

What could be better than a Jim Arnosky gatefold book? How about THREE Jim Arnosky gatefold books all together in one hardcover – with every spectacular gatefold intact? From slithering snakes to soaring birds of prey, and many other fascinating animals along the way, Jim Arnosky's Wild World gives nature-loving kids a life-size view of hundreds of creatures.

Jim Arnosky's Wild World includes: Wild Tracks, Slither and Crawl, and Thunder Birds.

Wild Tracks:
"This is a splendid example of Arnosky's skill at making natural history come alive for young readers."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
 
Slither and Crawl:
"Arnosky's painterly eye and personal observations match handsomely in this face-to-face experience [...] Neat foldouts [...] add an interactive touch to the artist's outstanding acrylics. [A] handsome, informative book [...] "
School Library Journal (starred review)
 
Thunder Birds:
"Elegant in format and artwork, this book will not accompany young birders into the field, but will be a rich resource for remembering special sightings, and inspire them to keep their eyes on the sky."
School Library Journal (starred review)
