What makes an ordinary animal extraordinary? This animal dictionary will help kids discover exactly what that is. From A to Z, authors Leslie Jonath and Lisa McGuinness single out common animals and highlight specific qualities that make them unique. Each fact-filled entry is ideal for newly independent readers. Entries include a physical description of the animal as well as information about the animals' environment, eating habits, prey, and more. The Dictionary of Ordinary Extraordinary Animals sends a message parents and children will find inspiring--a seemingly average animal having incredible characteristics that make it special. Children who feel ordinary themselves will swell with pride when they learn fascinating facts they can share with their friends!

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Publisher's Weekly"
"(this) informative guidebook combines casual descriptions of the animals with grainy illustrations reminiscent of vintage flashcards...Congdon's paintings are characterized by naturalistic details and touches of surprising whimsy--an owl's feathers are embellished in gold, purples, and reds--communicating a palpable sense of wonder in the bountiful diversity of animals."

"Globe and Mail" (Toronto)
"this big, handsome book with its attractive layout and a rich colour palette really does deliver the goods. From Aardvark to Zigzag Salamander, from Krill to Quahog, each and all are a feast for the eye and a sop to the curious of mind"
