A perfect gift book and learning tool, this collection moves beyond the familiar to investigate little-known animal-related vocabulary, paired with innovative design
A litter of kittens, a train of camels, a pride of lions: everyone has heard of these plural nouns. But what about a parcel of hogs, or a business of ferrets? What could be sillier than calling a group of pandas an embarrassment? How about a quiver of cobras, or an implausibility of gnus? These fanciful groups and many more are illustrated here with cutting-edge design—dazzling as a dazzle of zebras.
