Did you know that a frog can stop its heart from beating? Or that an elephant's tooth is heavier than a brick? Or that the brain of an ostrich is smaller than its eyeball?
In this book, there are 21 cross-sections that show how skeletons, organs, nerves, and muscles fit together inside creatures from across the globe. Animals can have some body parts in common with us humans, such as the brain, heart and lungs—but each creature has its own unique body to help it survive and thrive in the wild.
This means that there are all kinds of weird and wonderful organs and senses in the animal kingdom, such as the honey stomach in a honeybee or the ink sac of an octopus. Prepare to be dazzled as you discover incredible information to wow your family and friends with.
Uncover some truly amazing facts: did you know that the blue whale has arteries that are so big, a human could swim through them?
Learn about surprising ways in which animals have adapted to their environments, such as a scorpion's ability to glow in the dark!
Special spotlight sections throughout are packed full of absorbing details about skeletons, organs, muscles and more.
Brilliantly bright artwork makes every animal picture fascinating to look at again and again.
Featuring mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects, turn the pages and uncover what's happening inside animals. It's the perfect gift for curious readers everywhere!

This book is fantastic. I love the different animals to choose from and the amount of facts on each page. I liked the easy to follow layout and how colourful it is. I think this book will be a bit hit with children as well as adults. Thank you for the opportunity to read and review this book.
What a beautiful book. This book would fascinate any child learning about animals or life processes. I can see it becoming a classroom staple in so many ways. The information is very accessible and well thought out, which would appeal to so many children, either independent readers of those sharing the book or having it read with them. The illustrations really make the book. They are so bright and bold, and instantly draw you in to wanting to know more about that animal. Can dip in and out or read in one go. I foresee a future classic here.
