Product Description

This unique book features the trademark illustrations of the D'Aulaires, and arrives not as a book, but as a long, pull-out, folded paper encased in cloth-bound hardcover case. The front of the banner features colored pencil illustrations in bright hues, with simple text beneath highlighting animals by their broad environments-where it's hot, where there are seasons, and where it is always cold. The back features the same illustrations, but in black & white; the animals are labeled with their names and the noise they make. Read it page-by-page or pull it out to create a continuous panorama; more than fifty animals are lithographed in full color form.

Publisher's Description

THE CELEBRATED HUSBAND-AND-WIFE TEAM OF INGRI AND EDGAR PARIN D’AULAIRE
prepared this exceptionally beautiful volume for their own son Ola, and it is as fresh and enchanting today as it was when it first sprung from their imaginations.
D’Aulaires’ Book of Animals introduces young children to the creatures of every continent. Here more than fifty animals lithographed in full color form one side of a book that can be read page by page or unfolded to form a continuous panorama; the flipside of the panorama reveals the nighttime world of the animals in the very same settings. Each tableau presents the subjects in their native environments—from the tropical to the arctic—and is rendered with the exemplary richness of color and delightful understanding of the children’s world that distinguish the d’Aulaires’ much-loved retellings of the Norse and Greek myths and their wildly playful Book of Trolls. Young children, meeting animals from all over the world for the first time, will be delighted not only with the animals themselves but with the simple and engaging text which provides information about the way they act, the world they live in, and—best of all—the sounds they make. D’Aulaires’ Book of Animals is not only a perfect picture book for preschoolers, but a work of art that can be enjoyed by all.

Author Bio

Edgar Parin d’Aulaire (1898—1986) studied art in Germany and France and apprenticed with Henri Matisse. In Munich, he met Ingri Mortenson (1904—1980), a Norwegian-born art student. They married, emigrated to the US, and began a long career together, publishing over twenty picture books for children. Their biography of Abraham Lincoln won the 1940 Caldecott Medal. They were awarded the Regina Medal from the Catholic Library Association in 1970. New York Review Children’s Collection has recently published both D’Aulaires’ Book of Norse Myths and D’Aulaires’ Book of Trolls.

Editorial Reviews

"Unfold this glorious eight-foot-long frieze of nature's wild things and share a round-the-world safari with your favorite young animal lover. First published in 1940 and now happily back in print." -Parenting Magazine

"Those familiar with D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths will appreciate the New York Review Books' efforts to unite the authors' backlist. Having reissued both D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Myths and D'Aulaires' Book of Trolls , the publisher now presents the paper-over-board D'Aulaires' Book of Animals by Ingri and Edgar Parin D'Aulaire, originally published in 1940 as Animals Everywhere. The book folds out into a glorious full-color landscape, stretching from jungle to desert to Arctic climes; the reverse side, in b&w, names the animals and the sounds they make." -Publishers Weekly
