Atlas of Amazing Birds

Atlas of Amazing Birds

Author: Matt Sewell Format: Hardback Release Date: 03/09/2019

Matt Sewell has made his personal selection of the most amazing birds from around the world and illustrated them in his dazzling style, accompanied by witty and informative descriptions and maps of every continent. Did you know that the bald eagle holds the record for the world's biggest nest - weighing more than two tons? When the elf owl gets into trouble, it plays dead rather than fighting? The Adelie penguin can hold its breath for six minutes and leap up to three metres out of the water? Discover these and many more fascinating facts in this fabulous book. Every bird chosen to appear in this book is amazing in its own individual way - birds that migrate thousands of miles, have strange and showy mating rituals, survive in extreme environments, are brilliant builders, are super-fast, super-brave or super-big! Sections on each continent - Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia, North America, South America and Antarctica - include maps to pore over. Travel the world to see magnificent eagles, resilient penguins, tiny hummingbirds, towering ostriches, stunning peacocks and many more. Colourful, clever, song-filled, strange and stunning - this book is a celebration of bird life!

Forgotten Beasts

Forgotten Beasts

Author: Matt Sewell Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/10/2018

Matt Sewell's follow-up to the mega-hit Dinosaurs is a beautifully-illustrated large format look at the amazing beasts that time forgot - from the relatively well known, such as the sabre-toothed tiger and woolly mammoth, to the obscure monsters that walked the earth millions of years ago - many now forgotten. New findings are being made every year, and research is showing us exactly how these beasts looked and how they lived. Creatures illustrated and described include: Sabre tooth tigers and woolly mammoths Glyptodon - an armadillo as big as a VW Beetle car Megalodon - a monster 60 foot (18m) shark Water King penguin - a red and grey penguin the size of a man Ornimegalonyx - a huge Cuban flightless owl, the largest owl that ever existed, at over 3 feet (1m) tall Deinotherium - a strange-looking and huge, elephant-like creature with tusks positioned on its lower jaw and curved, facing downwards Short-nosed bear - a massive fearsome bear that kept North America human free Megatherium - the giant sloth, as large as a modern elephant Less celebrated than the dinosaurs, the range of beasts is equally impressive, every one a scary, amazing creature that actually stalked the planet. Like the dinosaurs, these beasts are awe-inspiring in their variety, with amazing details not seen on animals today and in a wide variety of furs, feathers and colours, making for a stunning collection of illustrations.
