Fierce or friendly, wild or domesticated-the animals that populate this board book bestiary look either awe-inspiring or just plain adorable. Illustrated with gloriously sharp, vivid color photographs, each volume appears in a child-friendly small format, diecut in the shape of the head of the creature that graces its cover. Inside, animals and their cute-as-a-button offspring waddle, cluck, sniff, romp and tumble. A few short sentences on each page offer zoological fundamentals (""Dogs have a better sense of smell than you or I"") and simple captions (""Hungry piglets drink their mother's milk""). Catnip for new and dyed-in-the-wool fans of the furred and feathered. Ages 2-5. (Apr.)
