Winner of the English Association 4-11 Picture Book Awards 2016 - Non-Fiction 7-11 category | Longlisted for the inaugural Klaus Flugge Prize, an important new illustration prize for children's books | One of our Books of the Year 2015 New from the company that brought you Creaturepedia and the Atlas of Adventures, this is another beautiful reference book that will cause readers to open their eyes wide in wonder at the beauty of the natural world. Step through those golden gates on the cover to enter five of Earth’s richest natural habitats: the Chihuahuan Desert, the Amazon Rainforest, the Black Forest, the Himalayan Mountains and the Great Barrier Reef. Each one is depicted in a vivid double page spread, crammed with examples of the animals and plants that make the regions special, while subsequent pages include close ups and written descriptions. Readers are addressed directly, instructed to watch for particular animals and to listen out for their sounds. It’s natural history but not as we know it: Williams plays with scale uses the startlingly bright colours of plants and animals to dazzle the eye. A wonder of a book indeed. ~ Andrea Reece
