Transformations II (Endangered) by Ellen Lanyon, like Transformation I, is an accordion style book composed of 16 pages, each with a central image the blends into the next, creating the overall fluid effect of the book's illustrations. However, Transformation II (Endangered) is several times larger than Transformation I, being 8 3/8" wide by 10 3/8" high. Featured images include animals, plants, a box, and a globe.
