As a boy, there is an assumption that you will conform to a stereotypical idea of masculinity. But what if you're the introvert kind? What if you prefer to pick up a book rather than a sword?

The foxes follow some helpful signs over the tallest trees, under the carrot fields and through the pumpkin patch, but there's no sign of any rabbits. What on earth has happened to them? And why are there strange eyes following them from the trees? Children will love outwitting the foxes - who continually say, No rabbits here - by spotting the rabbits in each colourful illustration.
Author - Matt Sewell
Matt Sewell's follow-up to the mega-hit Dinosaurs is a beautifully-illustrated large format look at the amazing beasts that time forgot - from the relatively well known, such as the sabre-toothed tiger and woolly mammoth, to the obscure monsters that walked the earth millions of years ago - many now forgotten. New findings are being made every year, and research is showing us exactly how these beasts looked and how they lived. Creatures illustrated and described include: Sabre tooth tigers and woolly mammoths Glyptodon - an armadillo as big as a VW Beetle car Megalodon - a monster 6 foot (18m) shark Water King penguin - a red and grey penguin the size of a man Ornimegalonyx - a huge Cuban flightless owl, the largest owl that ever existed, at over 3 feet (1m) tall Indricotherium - looking like a cross between a huge giraffe and a rhino, the largest land mammal ever to exist. Adults were 2 tons in weight and over 25 feet (8m) tall Deinotherium - a strange-looking and huge, elephant-like creature with tusks positioned on its lower jaw and curved, facing downwards Short-nosed bear - a massive fearsome bear that kept North America human free Aurochs - the wild bull, striped and with huge horns Megatherium - the giant sloth, as large as a modern elephant Mastodons - related to the mammoths but with shorter legs and a longer body The giant otter, that weighed 35lb (18kg) Less celebrated than the dinosaurs, the range of beasts is equally impressive, every one a scary, amazing creature that actually stalked the planet. Like the dinosaurs, these beasts are awe-inspiring in their variety, with amazing details not seen on animals today and in a wide variety of furs, feathers and colours, making for a stunning collection of illustrations.
