Cover reveal! Wildlife Compendium of the World

Wednesday, 22 February 2023

I'm delighted to reveal the cover to my upcoming tome, Wildlife Compendium of the World! This book was some years in the making and is a true labour of love. What a joy it was to research and write about these extraordinary animals from every continent on Earth, and to draw each one in all their incredible, adorable, unique and sometimes terrifying glory!

With 88 pages, a stunning textured cover with copper foiling, it's both a book for kids AND adults, with information I hope will delight and inspire.

Huge thanks to the amazing team at Hardie Grant Explore and to my publisher Melissa Kayser for asking me to create this book. I'm so proud of it and can't wait to share these awe-inspiring creatures with you.

From amphibians and reptiles to monotremes and pilosa, discover our world of enchanting fauna in this stunning illustrated book, Wildlife Compendium of the World by Tania McCartney.

Divided by continent, and with a handy map opener, you can explore some of the wildest, weirdest and cutest animals that call Earth home. Each animal profile includes the Latin name, type, diet, size, weight, conservation status, curious facts about the species, and the collective noun or baby name for that animal.

Meet a slug that resembles a banana and a fuzzball mammal with 90 strands of hair per follicle. Marvel at an ant that burns like fire, a pig-beaver-hippo-cow-camel hybrid that eats its own poop, and a creature with the shortest lifespan on Earth (five minutes!). Discover that a group of bears is called a sloth and a baby lizard is called a hatchling.

Wildlife Compendium of the World also features sections on animal types and environments, animal rights, a word glossary and the conservation status of each animal. With a lustrous textured cover, this book is a wonderful resource and the perfect gift for children and adults alike.
