Synopsis

Insect Emporium by Susie Brooks

Open up this treasure trove of insects and immerse yourself in a wondrous collection of creatures as nature unfolds around you. Hidden amongst the foliage you'll spy splashes of purple, orange, yellow, green and blue as a cloud of grasshoppers spring into action. And as you wander through, listen out for the buzzing of bees and the flitter of wings as caterpillars transform into a flutter of moths and butterflies. Then pause to admire the twinkling from the fireflies and glow-worms, and remember that your magical journey into this enchanting secret world has only just begun...This beautiful collection of insects contains a limited edition print of Dawn Cooper's gorgeous illustrations, sumptuous gold foil on the jacket and engaging information, making it a glorious gift book that will appeal to anyone who loved Animalium, The Wonder Garden or Creaturepedia. Susie Brooks has a first class history of art degree and has worked as an editor and author of children's non-fiction and picture books for over 10 years. She's an artist herself and sometimes runs workshops for young children. Dawn Cooper is a hugely talented illustrator who is inspired by natural history and botanical illustrations as well as things she has read or seen on her travels. In the rare moments when she's not drawing, Dawn likes nothing more than a long, rewarding walk with her camera.
