SOMEWHERE TODAY

The creator of the outstandingly elegant Animal Alphabet (1984) presents 12 beautifully composed, exquisitely detailed full-page portraits of animals in action: a sea otter floating on its back cracking mollusks; an archerfish squirting down a ladybug; a pair of eagles, talons linked, dramatically plummeting in their courtship ritual; a pair of handsome blue dung beetles at work; a golden dormouse curled peacefully in golden dry grass. The action in each scene is described clearly and briefly, with a few interesting facts about the animals included. Not for reference, but to use as a reminder of creation's beauty, and for simple enjoyment of the art.
