Portraits from the Wild
author: Katie Cotton
illustrator: Stephen Walton
Exquisite charcoal drawings of ten endangered creatures—lions, elephants, giraffes, pandas, tigers, chimpanzees, penguins, turtles, macaws, and zebras—startle the viewer with their size and astonishing detail. A poetic text notes each creature’s particular qualities and behavior, while providing a quiet counting exercise and a reminder that these animals must be cherished and protected.
A spectacular, visually stunning celebration of wildlife—and gentle counting book—that can be enjoyed by the entire family.
