“Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning.
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago.”

Whimsical and witty, “Man Gave Names to All the Animals” first appeared on Bob Dylans album Slow Train Coming in 1979. With Dylans blessing, illustrator Jim Arnosky has crafted a stunning picture book adaptation of the song thats a treat for both children and adults, with breathtaking images of more than 170 animals.
The revered musical legend rarely allows his songs to be illustrated, and Arnosky has done the song proud with a parade of spectacular creatures ready to receive their names—until the surprise ending, when children get to name an animal all by themselves!
