About this book

A funny and fascinating natural history of animal droppings, tracks and other traces, exploring how we can be detectives, by finding clues and learning about animals from what they leave behind. The contents covers faeces in great detail, footprints, nests and homes, skins, eggs and shells, and coprolites. Feature pages focus on animals, such as tigers and wolves, that are particularly dangerous to track. Fully-illustrated, this is a humorous and visually appealing book for any child with an interest in animals and nature, but particularly those children with a fondness for all things poop-related.
