Most groups of wildlife can be described as a flock, herd, or shoal--but where is the fun in ending there? -- from the Introduction

Whether you're an animal lover or a grammar geek, illustrator Matt Sewell has the perfect menagerie of beasts (and beast-related terms) for your reading pleasure. Along with fifty-five gorgeous color illustrations, Sewell presents the unexpected collective nouns used to describe groups of animals on land, in the air, and in the water. Discover the secret behind a sleuth of bears, keep your eyes open for a watch of nightingales, and learn something new about a school of whales. Illustrated in inimitable watercolor, this book makes a great gift for nature and art lovers everywhere.
