‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Animal Superheroes is about the strongest, biggest, fastest, scariest, smartest and most poisonous creatures around. In this book you will find out about wild animals and their incredible powers. Along the way, you’ll also learn why a bear’s nose is its secret weapon, how long a hippo can hold its breath underwater and which fearsome fish has two sets of teeth – one in its throat!
Each double spread has the written text with information about the respective animal on the left and a full colour picture on the right. Guillaume Plantevin’s illustrations are very impressive and stand out strongly throughout the book.
Most entries have information about the weight of each animal, the life span in years, their length and top speed in KPH, type of data that most children will find fascinating to learn about.
