When it comes to wild animals, everyone knows that there are certain things you just dont do. Its clearly a bad idea to tease a ti...ger, pull a pythons tail, or bother a black widow spider. But do you know how dangerous it can be to pet a platypus, collect a cone shell, or touch a tang fish? Some creatures have developed unusual ways of protecting themselves or catching prey, and this can make them unexpectedly hazardous to your health. In this dynamic and fascinating picture book by Steve Jenkins, youll find out what you should never do if you encounter one of these surprisingly dangerous animals.

Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see. ?Rene Magritte D.B. Johnson writes and... illustrates the surreal story of famous surrealist painter Rene Magritte and his very mysterious (and mischievous!) hat. While the art reflects some of Magrittes own work, the text sets readers on a fun and accessible path to learning about the simpler concepts behind Mr. Magrittes work. This delightful picture book captures the playfulness and the wonderment of surrealist art. Four transparent pages add yet another level of surrealism to the illustrations as pictures can be altered with the turn of a page.

What makes a camel friends with a Vietnamese pig? Or a wild polar bear pals with a sled dog? In this young preschool book, Catheri...ne Thimmesh makes us wonder at the truth and mystery of unlikely animal friendships. Because the stories behind these friendships are true, not contrived, captured by photographers in many countries ranging from Siberia to Japan, they not only give readers insight into animals but challenge preconceived notions about compatibility. This book also expresses tolerance of differences and makes us look at the kindness of animals?and humans?a little differently.
