A different look at the animal kingdom
By Tim Harris
Everything you could possibly want to know about animal tongues!
Most animals have one, but that's where the similarities end! Snakes smell with theirs, penguins use them to hang on to slippery fish, wolves use theirs to keep cool and giraffes twirl them around leaves to pluck them from the highest branches.
The variety of ways in which animals use their tongues is truly staggering and this fantastic book has got all the facts on animal tongues, licked! Gorgeous photographs illustrate the tongues of the animal kingdom and all the extraordinary ways they have evolved to help their owner live in harmony with the environment.
You didn't know you needed a book on animal tongues - but you'll soon be wondering why you haven't had one sooner! It's a cool way to take a sideways look at the animal kingdom and kids will be enthralled and delighted by this incredible book.

Tim has written books about nature and the environment for both children and adults, including the award-winning Migration Hotspots: the World's Best Bird Migration Sites. Apart from birds, his special interests are bats, moths, glaciers, and the weather.
