The agony uncle patiently responds to each creature's letter - about themselves, their peers and all aspects of minibeast life. Dr K Fisher's replies provide invaluable information about food sources, defence, attack and minibeast habitats.

Reviews

'What a great way of introducing kids to our wild wonders.'

's The Really Wild Show 'When I was a kid I'd have definitely referred to Dr K... I can highly recommend this book for any budding wildlife adventurer.'

's Prehistoric Park 'A wonderfully original book.'

'Budding wildlife enthusiasts will be thrilled to meet Dr K Fisher... Children will warm to its grooved-up readability, but far from dumbing down its readers, this book will wise them up.'
