About The Book

Get up close to 36 babies from the animal world—some adorable some intriguing, and some quirky-looking.

From the cheetah cub to the sleepy baby dormouse, The Magnificent Book of Baby Animals depicts the animal kingdom’s most fascinating and peculiar young creatures in stunning and accurate original illustrations. Intriguing facts accompany every illustration, so you can find out why meerkats ‘babysit’ each other’s pups, how turtle hatchlings try to flip each other over, and how newborn wild boar piglets can recognize their mother’s voice.
