Tortoises, seahorses, armadillos, penguins, frogs, whales… There are so many different kinds of animal living on earth – and lots of different ways they come into being!

This delightful book revels in the miracle of birth and new life in the animal world. Aina Bestard, renowned as the creator of children’s books that make innovative use of RGB glasses, takes a different approach here, using tracing paper overlaid on illustrations to create scenes formed through delicate layers. The result is a sensitively handled and charming book on a topic that fascinates adults and children alike.
