Among Fascinating Creatures

Did you know that millipedes are among the oldest creatures on Earth? Or that pandas spend most of their days eating bamboo? How are the lives of these animals affected by humans? Among Fascinating Creatures is a wild nonfiction book about animals written by Aino Järvinen and illustrated by Laura Merz, and it follows in the footsteps of their bestseller A Thousand and One Creatures. Merz dove into the world of animals to find surprising facts about them and used brushes, pieces of cardboard and wooden sticks to give each animal their own unique texture, motion and character.
