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.
The boards are in relatively good condition, though the rear board is rather worn. As is the case with most matt board Ladybirds, the spine and corners are bumped. A 3.5 cm (1.4″) section of the top of the spine has become slightly detached. Several pages have foxing, the heaviest of which is present on the front and rear endpapers, but are otherwise free from any other marking, with the illustrations remaining bright.
Measures 17.5 cm × 11.5 cm (7″ × 4.6″). 12mo. 52 pp.
