This beautiful book will delight young animal lovers. Through evocative paintings, children are brought face to face with wildlife from around the world. Brian Wildsmith has captured the essence of each animal - from the playfulness of otters to a noisy gathering of parrots. His panoramic pictures also give a real sense of the animals' habitats-from a sun-soaked plain where elephants roam to icy Antarctica where penguins huddle together. Collective nouns - some familiar, others wonderfully surprising - are used to describe each group of animals. This is a book that will inspire a love of nature and a respect for animals from the earliest age.
Animal Gallery is quite simply breathtaking. (lovereading4kids.co.uk)
His explorations of the natural world offer rich visual experiences. The baby owl's feathers . . . have a thistledown texture that makes you want to blow on the page . . . Fishes are speckled, stippled and splattered, and-with the subtle stained-glass luminosity of the underwater world-are as much paintings in their own right as they are illustrations. (The Guardian)
His paintings allow us to step into lush landscapes (Korky Paul, Sunday Express S Magazine)
