Animals Illustrated mixes fun-filled animal facts suitable for the youngest of readers with intricately detailed illustrations to create a unique and beautiful collection of children’s non-fiction books on Arctic animals. Each volume contains first-hand accounts from authors who live in the Arctic, along with interesting facts on the behaviours and biology of each animal. Kids will learn about how narwhal raise their young in the cold Arctic Ocean, what they eat, and where they can be found, along with other interesting information, like the fact that a narwhal’s long tusk is actually a tooth!

Narwhal is definitely recommended for school libraries and classroom collections.”—CM Magazine

“The illustrations are instructive on their own. They are so lively that their message transcends the written word. The drawings will enthral pre-readers and afficionados of graphic stories will find a good lesson on arctic ecology…”—Indigenous Voices Award

“The table of contents gives a clear sense of organization. The illustrations are both scientifically accurate, engaging, and beautiful.”—Kid Lit North
