Some animals are part of a Gangly Gang whilst others belong to the Woolly Wanderers; there are also Legless Legends, Spotted Bottoms and Magic Mimics. These are just a few of the quirky groupings artist Tai Snaith uses to categorise over 270 of her favourite diurnal animals from around the world.
Each animal is drawn to scale and uses people and body parts as comparison. The Arctic bumblebee is the width of any eye, the sulphur-crested cockatoo is the length of an arm, and the wild yak is taller than a basketball player!
Including facts and information about the curious creatures found within, Wonders Under the Sun is a delightfully illustrated field guide for all the aspiring explorers, artists, environmentalist and taxonomists.
