A beautiful hardcover edition to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Alison Lester's much-loved classic picture book. Imagine offers a fascinating look into the natural world, and has delighted children and parents over many years. Imagine yourself deep in the jungle, under the sea, in a land of ice and snow, on a farm, in the moonlit bush, on an African plain, in a prehistoric swamp. Then turn the page and find all the animals living there.
A wonderful introduction to the natural world with intricate pictures to explore again and again, and a key to help you name all the animals.
