Description

Are you ready to meet some of the most incredible Olympians in the world? These animal athletes are at the top of their game, and they’re ready to go for gold!
 
This fascinating book for readers aged 5+ examines the incredible abilities of animals from all around the globe with a captivating and original conceit – in Animal Olympics, the creatures are competing, and the reader has a front row seat to the action.
 
In each event, animals are awarded bronze, silver or gold for their skills. Events featured in the book include diving, wrestling, rock climbing and gymnastics. Readers will discover all kinds of astounding animals, from the bar-headed goose, which flies at heights of up to 6,300 metres, to the flic-flac spider, which cartwheels across the Moroccan desert. Fun vignettes show the animals in their heat, and are accompanied by absorbing, fact-packed captions.
 
On your marks, get set, and off we go to the Animal Olympics!
