Silver Birch Award shortlist, 2005

Fifth House is GOING WILD with a new children's nonfiction adventure series. The first of eight books features world-famous zoologist Brian Keating and his travels to experience unique ecosystems and observe animals from pole-to-pole and around the equator.

Amazing Animal Adventures Around the World is a nature book like no other, as children learn about wildlife, the environment, and conservation through first-person accounts from one of Canada's foremost animal
adventurers. In this book, lavishly illustrated by his own photographs, Keating describes ten of his most memorable wildlife-watching trips in his trademark
energetic and upbeat style.

Join Keating as he describes:

Miraculously escaping from a pride of charging lions in Africa on the scariest day of his life
Strolling down a penguin superhighway in Antarctica
Discovering (the hard way) the memorable defence mechanism of Norway's petrels - projectile vomiting
Marvelling at Borneo's amazing proboscis monkeys with their huge light-bulb noses dangling between their eyes
Looking into the eyes of Godzilla when getting up close-and-personal with marine iguanas in the Galapagos
