SHORTLISTED FOR 2021 ELSIE LOCKE AWARD FOR NON-FICTION, NZ BOOK AWARDS FOR CHILDREN & YOUNG ADULT

For more information on NZ Book Awards, click here.

A beautiful non-fiction picture book about animals around the world, taking readers around the world through the months of the year, looking at seasons in both the northern and southern hemisphere. It focuses on a species in each hemisphere for that month, e.g. March in the northern hemisphere is polar bear cubs in the Canadian Arctic and also saltwater crocodiles in Australia. There will be a range of countries, habitats, species and animal activities. Potential for more in-depth facts at the end of the book for older readers.

NZ Book Awards wrote "A month-by-month approach is used to highlight the different ways in which Northern and Southern Hemisphere animals deal with changing seasons, and how variations in climate affect the ways in which animals breed, feed and survive. Maps and gorgeous watercolour illustrations complement the informative but accessible text. This book brings the whole world to us, with new discoveries on every page — a dormouse here, a honeypot ant there!"
