Summary
Red, blue, yellow, green, orange, purple, pink—animals can be startlingly colorful. Why are they found in so many shades, tints, and hues? From the scarlet ibis to the blue-tongued skink, award-winning author/illustrator Steve Jenkins depicts a whole world of colorful animals in his signature style. Living Color explores a range of animals from old favorites like the pink flamingo to rare and fascinating creatures such as the long-wattled umbrella bird and the ringed caecilian. How do the brilliant feathers, scales,shells, and skin of these animals help them survive? Find out in this strikingly beautiful book how animals use color to warn predators, signal friends, attract a mate, or hide from their enemies
Summary
Budding young naturalists (and artists!) will be fascinated by this book, which provides intriguing information about and stunning cut-paper collage illustrations of a wide variety of colorful creatures. Gloriously lifelike images of animals -- from the common yellow wild canary to the exotic green leafy sea dragon or purple long-wattled umbrella bird -- are organized by color, and the easily understood text explains the source, purpose, or message of each animal's hue. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
