I have read two other books in this series:
After checking out two other animals in this series, I had to peruse through this as well. A few years ago, unexpectedly, my husband and I chanced upon a black mother bear and her three cubs. We had seen them cross the road in the national park earlier, but then we were in a car, and they were not. Now we had blundered almost next to them. All the previously known advice flew out of my brain, and although I backed away slowly, the rest of the progress off the trail was done much quicker. She actually made eye contact with me. This collection, therefore, was more significant to me than I expected.
The photos were as beautiful as expected. The chapters are divided by behaviour and not by species. We get a brief introduction to all the species and some salient facts. The one about polar bears surprised me. A few photos of the bears lounging were hilariously close to how we would look on a sofa. I am willing to keep picking up every subsequent species that the publishers put out. They are an introduction as well as a summary of what we can actually retain about animals.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
