A perfect gift book and learning tool, this book moves beyond the familiar to investigate little-known animal-related vocabulary, paired with innovative design A litter of kittens, a colony of ants, a pride of lions: everyone has heard of these plural nouns. But what about a parcel of hogs, a kaleidoscope of butterflies, or a business of ferrets? What could be more apt than calling a group of cockroaches an intrusion? Perhaps a loveliness of ladybirds! These fanciful groups and many more are illustrated with cutting-edge design--dazzling as a dazzle of zebras.
