Synopsis

The What on Earth? Wallbook of Natural History Mini Edition by Christopher Lloyd

The What on Earth? Wallbook of Natural History Mini Edition is about the size of an A5 postcard but tells the complete story of life on Earth. It contains an incredible 4.5 billion year fold-out timeline which is crammed with over 1,000 illustrations and amazing bite-size facts about the natural world. Fully checked and approved by scientists at the Natural History Museum, it can either be read like a book or unfolded and stuck on a wall. The versatile mini edition is just like the larger, critically acclaimed version but it fits snugly into the palm of your hand. There is also a magnificent magnifer inside that allows readers to explore in a fun and engaging way, and a new mind-boggling 100-question multiple-choice quiz too - the answers can all be found somewhere on the timeline. This innovative book will provide children and families with hours of entertainment and education.

'This brilliant book on the history of our planet has more than 1,000 illustrations on a single 4.5 billion-year timeline. Learn everthing about Earth!'

'A lovely visual addition to the wall and a more significant addition to the mind'

'Animal magic'
