Marvellous Mammals: A Wild A to Z of Southeast Asia
Written by Debby Ng
Illustrated by Darel Seow
An illustrated compendium of quirky facts about the "Asian unicorn" and other species in Southeast Asia to give children a deeper appreciation for our wildlife.
We know that dogs bark, cats meow, and cows moo. But do you know dholes whistle “whee-whee”, wild boars grunt “grrt-grrt”, and siamangs call out “ooh-wow-wow”?
The Southeast Asian forests are full of incredible wildlife waiting to be discovered. In the humid nature reserves of Singapore, high up the mountain forests of Papua, and in the tropical waters of the Irrawaddy, a multitude of mammals live their unseen lives. They await a bold explorer to learn their secrets. Could that explorer be you?
In this beautifully illustrated alphabet book, expert wildlife ecologist Debby Ng and illustrator Darel Seow part the leaves to showcase lesser-known animals of Southeast Asia! Readers will learn about these unique mammals’ habitat, behaviour, food choices, and their relationship with humans.
