Reviews

Stunning illustrations encourage little readers to follow the migration patterns of animals from around the world through a series of beautiful mazes * Little London *
Here's a really fabulous idea for an animal book, particularly if your kids also love devilishly fiendish puzzles too...! "Animazes" cleverly combines animal facts and figures for a huge range of species across many continents, with some beautifully designed and illustrated mazes to plot their migration journeys as they move with the seasons. Each huge page spread in this wonderful book is full of exquisite detail and children will love tracing the routes through the maze for each species, over land and water, across the seas or even the frozen wastes of the North and South Poles. Boxed-out animal facts are fantastic for helping children learn a little bit more about particular animals, it's a very attractive package indeed... We really enjoyed this book, great for home or school. The mazes aren't too taxing for little ones, but it's a great book to sprawl out on the floor with and share. * Read It Daddy *
Did you know that humpback whales are some of the furthest travelling mammals in the world? Or that Arctic terns fly from the Arctic to Antarctica and back again? In Melissa Castrillon's wonderfully illustrated Animazes, young readers can follow these incredible journeys through twisting, turning mazes. They can find a safe path for the wildebeest and trace a rockhopper penguin's trail up the slippery cliffs. An interactive, informative title for all ages. * World Book Day *
Follow the journeys of the world's most fascinating animal migrants in this beautifully created and illustrated book of mazes. Many animals - both great and small - make incredible journeys to migrate. Some travel by sea and some by air, some travel through ice and some across deserts. Some, like reindeer, migrate to find food. Others, like Christmas Island red crabs, travel to find the right environment to help the next generation survive. Inquisitive youngsters can trace the incredible journeys of 14 very different animals by following the mazes with their finger and learning all sorts of fascinating facts along the way. Can you find a safe path for the wildebeest and trace a rockhopper penguin's trail up the slippery cliffs? And did you know that humpback whales are some of the furthest travelling mammals in the world? They swim thousands of miles to give birth to their calves in the warm seas near the equator. Arctic terns fly from the Arctic to Antarctica and back again every year, teacup-sized ruby-throated hummingbirds make a dangerous journey over the Gulf of Mexico and one hundred million Monarch butterflies fly south to California and Mexico every winter. Katie Haworth digs out the fascinating facts and Melissa Castrillon provides the intricate illustrations and stunning twisting, turning mazes which let young readers follow these incredible migrations. Packed with detail, interactive fun and colour, Animazes opens up an exciting world of animal migration and reveals the amazing obstacles and distances these creatures encounter in their battle to survive and breed. A thrilling, interactive walk through the wildest corners of our planet... * Lancashire Evening Post *
This fascinating book takes children on an exciting trail as they follow the world's most amazing animal jpurneys. Did you know that humpback whales are some of the furthest travelling mammals in the world? Or that Arctic terns fly from the Arctic to Antarctica and back again? Young (and not so young) readers can follow these incredible journeys through twisting, turning mazes. The book is packed with information about a whole host of animals including wildebeest, red crabs, rockhopper penguins and many more. * Parents in Touch *
This unusual book of mazes follows the journeys of fourteen animal migrants from Antarctic krill and Monarch butterflies to Humpback whales and Mali elephants. For some of these creatures such as reindeer, finding food is the reason for their journey; for others, such as Rockhopper Penguins, it's to seek a suitable environment for the survival of the next generation. In tracing their journeys, the aim is to discover the one safe path for each animal and in so doing, readers will discover a host of fascinating facts about the creature. Did you know for instance that Mali elephants all pass through one narrow passage, The Porte des Elephants on their migratory travels? Or that Wildebeest participate in the largest mass migration of mammals on earth? It's Katie Howarth who provides these and the other interesting snippets of information that support Melissa Castrillion's intricately detailed illustrations through which the mazes are woven. Absorbing, fun and educational. -- Jill Bennet * Red Reading Hub *
Animals from all over the world make extraordinary journeys; through the air or sea, across deserts or over ice. In this sumptuously-illustrated book young readers can follow the penguins, elephants, whales and wildebeest through the twisting, turning mazes to get to their final destination. Fascinating facts are dotted along the way to encourage young minds to explore and learn. A lovely, interactive gift for the curious minded. * South Wales Evening Post *
