"Most groups of wildlife can be described as a flock, herd, or shoal--but where is the fun in ending there?" -- from the Introduction Whether you're an animal lover or a grammar geek, illustrator Matt Sewell has the perfect menagerie of beasts (and beast-related terms) for your reading pleasure. Along with fifty-five gorgeous color illustrations, Sewell presents the unexpected collective nouns used to describe groups of animals on land, in the air, and in the water. Discover the secret behind a "sleuth of bears," keep your eyes open for a "watch of nightingales," and learn something new about a "school of whales." Illustrated in inimitable watercolor, this book makes a great gift for nature and art lovers everywhere.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Matt SewellPublisher: Ten Speed PressPublished: 09/05/2017ISBN: 9780399579394Pages: 144Weight: 0.70lbsSize: 7.60h x 5.60w x 0.70dReview Citations: Shelf Awareness 11/21/2017
