The Animal Body Book

An Insider's Guide to the World of Animal Anatomy




Explore animal bodies inside and out, with children's author and vet Dr Jess French

Animals come in all shapes and sizes, and they are just as different on the inside as they are on the outside. Join children's author and vet Dr Jess French and explore how animal bodies work, and the amazing things they can do.

Animals perform extraordinary feats every day, from breathing underwater to flying, but how do they do these amazing things? The answers lie in the miraculous forms and features of their bodies. Take a look under the skin of all sorts of animals to see how their different organs help them to survive and thrive. From a whale's enormous heart and an owl's sensitive ears, to a tortoise's tough shell and an insect's unusual eyes, explore more than 40 animal adaptations in close detail. With nine chapters covering skeletons, circulation, digestion, the senses and more, every aspect of anatomy is covered, all clearly explained by animal expert Dr Jess French. Stunning photography combined with cutaway illustrations reveal what each species looks like inside, and colourful diagrams help support understanding.

The Animal Body Book is a friendly introduction to animal anatomy, perfect for any child fascinated by animals or budding veterinarians.
