Find out about animal tools  Cover Image Book Book

Find out about animal tools / Martin Jenkins ; illustrated by Jane McGuinness.

Jenkins, Martin, (author.). McGuinness, Jane, (illustrator.).


"Many animals use tools in ingenious ways--some use sticks, others use stones, and some can even sew! The archerfish spits jets of water to knock down its prey. The palm cockatoo makes drumsticks to impress its mate with a beat. The burrowing owl attracts beetles by decorating its doorway with dung, and chimpanzees skillfully wield grass stems to fish out termites. In their fourth book in the Find Out About series, Martin Jenkins and Jane McGuinness look at a range of clever tools that show just how inventive animals can be." -- Provided by publisher
