A Small Book of Animals
Throw out your old encyclopaedia and let Eugen Roth explain the animal kingdom! In Small Book of Animals he turns his attention to fauna, with his usual light-hearted wisdom, humour and expertise. From albatrosses and ants to wasps and zebras, all the flying and crawling creatures of the world are here. Eugen Roth's lively, rhyming verses capture the characteristic traits of his animals and charm us with their wit and affectionate descriptions. Nor does he fail to bring out the parallels to our own human lives.
Philip Waechter captures Roth's take on people and animals in wonderfully appropriate pictures – adding another delightful layer of humour to this Small Book of Animals.
