Teach your children about the animals of the forest with this fun and educational book. Five animals - a brown bear, wolf, squirrel, otter and deer - are explored through rhyme, pictures and pull-out cards to construct into 3D figures. With two spreads dedicated to each animal, adults will be able to read the short playful rhyme on each spread to children and look at the bright illustrations to teach them about their habits and environment. The inside of the dust jacket is printed full colour with a graphical representation of the animals' environment.

John French (1907-66) was an English fashion and portrait photographer. Born in London, French became one of the capital's top fashion photographers in the 1950s and 60s and was the first to evolve a technique which resulted in a photograph that would reproduce with total success in newsprint. French himself devoted much attention to the set and posing of his models, but left the actual triggering of the shutter to assistants, amongst whom were Terence Donovan and David Bailey. His wife, Vere Denning, a fashion journalist, gave his photographic archive to the V&A in 1982.
John French was an English fashion and portrait photographer. Born in London in 1907, French was instrumental in recording the fashion boom of his home city in the 50s and 60s, photographing all the most famous faces of his day. Known for his impeccably lit, chic set-ups, French encouraged newspaper editors to cover fashion in their pages, and worked to create low-contrast images with natural lighting that could be reliably reproduced in newsprint. His archive of negatives, contact prints and press cuttings, the result of over 10,000 sittings, is held at the V&A.
