Large Encyclopedias of Animals

3 books | categories: 9 - 12 Middle Grade

The world is losing animals in great numbers. Some species have left us for ever, others are so endangered as to be on the verge of extinction.

The first two publications in the Large Encyclopedias of Animals narrative series are both memento and warning to humankind to think again about its treatment of nature. Exhaustive information from the pen of award-winning Czech writer and poet Radek Malý is complemented with impressive full-page illustrations by leading Czech illustrators Pavel Dvorský and Jiří Grbavčic. The third publication in the series introduces the reader to the wonderful world of insects, oft-unnoticed creatures without which there would be no life on our planet. It is written by leading Czech entomologist Jiří Kolibáč and illustrated by Pavel Dvorský and his wife Pavla Dvorská.
