Reviews

...The illustrations are what really make this book. It is a feast for both the eye and the brain with a mixture of colourful paintings, photographs of the author's own discoveries, and wonderfully clear but detailed sketches... All in all this is a lovely little book and one that is small enough to pop in your rucksack and take out for your travels in the countryside. -- Anusha Edwards, The Biologist, March 2011; ...There is so much information packed into one small book it would undoubtedly complement the delivery of outdoor science at key stage 2. I would also recommend it as a useful tool for teachers; I personally really enjoyed reviewing it and discovered some new and exciting facts in the process. -- Kathy Schofield, Primary Science, April 2011 ...I'm often asked to recommend books for young naturalists and I shall certainly put this on my list. -- David Attenborough

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
