Everything about An Anthology of Intriguing Animals is beautifully done, from the intriguing cover to the illustrations to the unbelievable actual pictures placed on perfect backgrounds, even the inside cover paper. Many of the animals in the pictures are looking at you straight on which makes them even more mesmerizing. The look of An Anthology of Intriguing Animals is quite reminiscent of old encyclopedia's with its ribbon bookmark, gold edging, heavy card stock paper and covers each textured with a different tapestry of animals to find.

Each little animal description is interesting, fun, easy for even a young one to understand and often with a fascinating bit of legend about the animal. There is a bit of social justice activism opinion in some of the animal blurbs which I found unnecessary but, while annoying, it doesn't take away from the beauty of a book that should be on every child's shelf.

Full disclosure: I skipped the snakes.
