Stunning panoramic illustrations take families around the world to discover where and how wild animals live.

A sweeping, colorful, and captivating compendium, Wildlife Atlas takes readers of all ages on a global tour of animal kingdoms. Vivid maps and spectacular artwork span the continents to illuminate eight distinct habitats and reveal the survival secrets of their eclectic inhabitants.

At every stop, they'll learn vital facts of survival: what each individual animal eats and how each habitat's diverse creatures manage to live together.
