Hoot and Howl Across the Desert

Life in the World's Driest Deserts

Written by Vassiliki Tzomaka

A beautifully illustrated and fascinating exploration of what life is like for animals in some of the world’s harshest desert environments, where only the toughest creatures survive.

Discover the remarkable plants and animals that live in the world’s driest climates—both hot and cold! With beautifully illustrated landscapes, this book proves just how much life exists in the world’s deserts. Travel around the globe and encounter hundreds of rare and little-known plants and animals that thrive in dry environments. Learn about nocturnal species who occupy the deserts, common survival tactics, lethal creatures to watch for, and how the desert food chain functions.

Hoot and Howl Across the Desert is an engaging investigation of some of the most extreme environments on Earth, from California’s Mojave Desert to the Arctic and from the Sahara to the Australian outback. With graphic illustrations that draw stylistically on folk art local to each desert, Vassiliki Tzomaka provides a level of detail that will satisfy even the most curious reader.
