      How Animals Live

      by Bernard Stonehouse

      One of the great marvels of nature is how animals behave – how they live and reproduce, how they hunt and feed, how they survive. They make a living in hundreds of different ways, some of them quite extraordinary. Scientists who are interested in how animals live spend their lifetime studying their behaviour. They watch them in the wild, in jungles, deserts, on snow and ice, up in the mountains or down in the oceans. The more they learn, the more they are impressed by the tricks animals use to survive in an unfriendly world. This book is about what animals do to keep themselves alive, to live as comfortably and efficiently as possible, and to perpetuate their species. It tells of a wide range of animals, mostly birds and mammals, but some insects, reptiles, fish, amphibians, and others too. Some are familiar, everyday kinds of animals, others are strange and exotic creatures that you would be lucky to see even in zoos. This book is a family book for anyone interested in animals and their ways.

      Prehistoric Mammals

      by Alan Turner

      The extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago was the signal for another group of animals to move towards world dominance – the mammals. And they grew more intelligent – culminating, we like to think, in the evolution of the human race. This book, the follow-up to our 192pp National Geographic Society Dinosaurs, tells the story of prehistoric mammals. The artist Mauricio Antón, a leading scientific illustrator, is producing more than twenty stunning double-page scenes to illustrate animals in their habitats.

      Like its sister volume (192pp Living Mammals) this completely rewritten and redesigned 96pp World Mammals book features all 21 orders of mammals, but is for a younger readership. Tighter, more focused text and fact files, larger illustrations and a more open, lively design combine to make this a truly fascinating and accessible dip-in reference book for 8 to 12 year olds.
