Queens of the Jungle

Meet the Female Animals Who Rule the Animal Kingdom!

Discover the coolest female animals in the natural world with biologist Dr Carly Anne York.

Male lions are often referred to as the “Kings of the Jungle” because they are thought to be the strongest, bravest, and fiercest animals in the world. This is a myth. In fact, it’s the lionesses that are out hunting together and taking down large animals to feed their entire pack, including the males!

In this illustrated animal book, filled with fun facts and incredible artwork from Kimberlie Clinthorne-Wong, readers will be inspired by other examples of girls getting it done. They’ll meet orca grandmothers who are in command of their pods, sex-changing clownfish, and backflipping female ants. They’ll be stunned by the female blanket octopus, who is 80 times bigger than the males of the species, and be left gobsmacked by an entirely female species of lizard!

Packed with groundbreaking science and stunning illustrations, Queens of the Jungle is the perfect book for kids who love learning about animals.
