Rainforest by Jinny Johnson
"Kingfisher Voyages" take the reader (the 'voyager') on a fantastic, interactive journey of discovery. Using acetates, gatefolds and die-cut pages, in-depth information is presented in a new, exciting and irresistible way. Meet your guide, a rainforest expert (Nalini Nadkarni), who provides her own, unique eyewitness accounts of what it is like to explore a habitat where over half the world's wildlife lives. Climb up through the 'layers' of the rainforest, from the dark forest floor and tropical waterways, through dense foliage, until finally reaching the cloud canopy. Visit the world's most amazing habitat to see a huge variety of flora and fauna, from anteaters and pitcher plants to piranhas and bromeliads. Along the way, peer through die-cut tree-holes to see what lives inside, lift the acetate to reveal the inside of a Mayan temple and use the divider tabs to move easily from one chapter to the next. The journey ends in the giddy heights of the uppermost treetops where few scientists dare to explore.
