About

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.

About the artist
Aubrey Beardsley

Born in Brighton in 1872, Aubrey Beardsley was an English illustrator and author. He had a distinctive and now iconic style, using black ink to create his graphic drawings inspired by Japanese woodcuts. His fascination with the grotesque, the erotic and the decadent made him a controversial figure at the time, but also hugely fashionable. He worked closely with Oscar Wilde, producing illustrations to accompany the English edition of Wilde’s opera, Salome. Instrumental in the beginnings of the Art Nouveau movement, Beardsley was hugely prolific during his tragically short career; he worked seriously for only six years before his death from tuberculosis at the age of 25.
