SUMMARY- I loved the first two books these artists published with all my heart, so imagine my delight when they came up with a third! I hope fervently for a fourth - I don't think I can ever have enough of their work. The animals are amazing, but there's one thing that awes me most - especially in this latest addition - and that is their landscapes. They capture the beauty of a place so effortlessly(or so it seems), in the five landscape paintings(which they do not give instructions for) that I found myself staring at their rocks and streams more than the animals! This work is masterful - I do not use that word lightly. If you have nothing else on your shelves for inspiration, you should at the very least have Zhu and Yao's books.
