Description: This is not just a book about animals, it is much more; it is the story of how they live and how they have evolved to suit their way of life. It is, in fact, a book about the evolution of mammals (both tame and wild), told in simple language.
In true Ladybird fashion, there are beautiful, full-page colour illustrations on every other page. The front pastedown and endpaper contain b&w illustrations of different mammalian skeletons.
Laminated pictorial boards. Slight creasing to front (refer to image). Lending ticket and holder affixed to front pastedown. Unused lending record attached to fep. Other than that, the book is in remarkable condition for an ex-school library copy – the pages are crisp, bright, and unmarked. Ultra-tight binding.
Measures 17.5 cm × 11.5 cm (7″ × 4.5″). 12mo. 52 pp.
