Creature ABC by Andrew Zuckerman
If Zuckerman were only the author of this book, he would have little call for pride in his accomplishment; the entire text of the book consists of less than fifty words, all of which are simply labels to the photographs (though I suppose, if you count the glossary at the end, we might up that to about four hundred.) But it's not the text that draws you to the book. It's the photographs. They are, in a word, brilliant. Alive. Vivid. A surprise here and there. (What does he use for "u", you might ask. A surprise.)
So a good review of this book might simply be a series of photographs, with an accompanying label. Perhaps it might start like this:
Okay, you get the idea. Marvelous work.
