I like the way this book is written - the child is directly involved as the book takes the reader around the zoo...There are plenty of fun facts and the detailed illustrations add to the value of the content. -- Sarah Brew * www.parentsintouch.co.uk *

Q & A with Mike Unwin

What is your favourite species of bird, and what are its characteristics?

Where is your favourite birding destination and why?

How did you first become interested in birds and how long have you been a birder?
Birds have been a passion for as long as I can remember. I was certainly already hooked by the age of six (when I remember seeing a Golden Eagle on a family holiday to Scotland). Of course it helped that my family were keen, so we had bird books in the house, fed birds in the garden and looked out for birds on holiday. And my granny gave me her old binoculars, which lasted me for years (though only one eyepiece worked). For me, birds always went hand in hand with drawing — I wanted to draw whatever I saw, and wanted to see whatever I drew. And it’s not only birds: I like all other wildlife too, especially snakes and cats.
