Pinner, Erna

A lovely book and dust jacket in as new condition, written and illustrated by Erna Pinner. Clean bright orange cloth boards with bright silver lettering on spine. No fading or wear.

Wonderful illustrations throughout. 256 pages with index. Clean dust jacket is unchipped, no tears, not price clipped. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. To many of us the curious creatures described so vividly in this book are so unfamiliar as to seem almost incredible. Taking a number of different forms of animal life to illustrate her point in each case, Erna Pinner gives examples of curious behaviour inthe struggle for food, in nest-building, in paternal nursing. She shows us birds that cannot fly and four-footed animals that can; creatures which, either for protection or for aggression, make themselves appear what they are not; creatures living on other creatures; the curious things that can and do come out of an egg, and so much more. 026385
