Praise for Tom Hunter:

“[Hunter’s] drawings are accurate. The animals look as if they could step off the page.”—Canadian Library Association

Western Canada is home to thousands of distinct species of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and insects. Highlighting over two hundred animals found across the west, acclaimed illustrator Tom Hunter provides a fun, fact-filled introduction to wildlife for children ages nine to twelve. Kids will learn to tell the difference between the mountain goat and the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, find out where they can spot a wolverine in the wild, and discover which species of shark live off the west coast of Canada. Each species has a detailed, scientifically accurate illustration and essential facts about where it lives, what it eats, and what makes it unique. From the largest marine mammals to the tiniest insects, this book will open children’s eyes to the amazing variety of animals living all around them.
