This handsome oversize atlas features an expansive grouping of animals and the distinctive ecosystems they inhabit. Bordicchia’s strikingly detailed animals are accompanied by captions and boxes from zoologist Crumpton that supply engaging details about their behavior and anatomy (“The Siberian flying squirrel flies by stretching out the flaps of skin between its front and back legs”). Double-sided foldouts for North America and Asia give readers a closer look at regions within those continents, and closing sections touch on animal endangerment and conservation. The atlas layout allows for a deeper understanding of the planet’s biodiversity while highlighting dozens of intriguing animals. Ages 6–up. (Oct.)
