Abstract:

"Animals of all shapes and sizes make epic journeys across our planet, through harsh weather, avoiding hungry predators, in their efforts to survive. Travel around the globe with some of the world's most incredible animals and discover their unique migration stories"--Provided by publisher.

Every year, millions of animals of all shapes and sizes make epic journeys across our planet. Animals migrate because their environment changes. They travel t ofind food or give birth safely, often enduring harsh weather and dodging hungry predators. Emperor penguins trudge through snow, ice, and bitter temperatures to reach their breeding grounds. Great white sharks swim more than 6,000 miles in search of prey. African elephants trek through barren desert on their yearly hunt for water. Each species has its own story to tell. Travel writer Mike Unwin's text pairs with stunning illustrations from Jenni Desmond, a New York Times Best Illustrated Books winner, in this collection of remarkable animal journeys around the world. --
