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.
Henry George Gawthorn was born in Northampton and studied at Regent Street Polytechnic in London. He started his career as an architect but turned to poster design and became one of Britain’s most stylish railway poster artists. He painted a number of posters both for advertising and for the interiors of carriages for the London, Midland and Scottish Railway, the Southern Railway and LNER. Auction prices of his beautiful travel posters have often set new world auction records. There is often a self-portrait of Gawthorne in his posters. Look out for a man with pince-nez and a panama hat or sometimes sitting on a deckchair.
