Nominated for the Kate Greenaway Award, this is an eye-popping compilation of animal group names with a fresh, contemporary design approachA school of whales, a flock of geese, a murder of crows: these are some of the animal group names we have grown up with. But have you heard of a congregation of crocodiles, a flamboyance of flamingos, or a smack of jellyfish? Then turn the pages of this book to discover a collection of lesser-known and sometimes more fanciful ones—a fever of stingrays, a storytelling of ravens, a battery of barracudas, and more, illustrated with bold, punchy shapes and colors that are powerful to the eye and the mind.
