This quirky but fact-filled and inspirational book opens up the world of Observology, aka the study of looking. The good news is that it’s very easy to become an observologist, you just need to be curious and to spend a lot of time gazing at the ground. Once you’ve mastered those skills, Giselle Clarkson explains what taxonomy means, and what an invertebrate is. Then there are pages encouraging readers to look at and learn about the living things to be found in damp corners, on the pavement, in weedy patches and behind the curtains.

The pages are full of information, mostly but not entirely on insects, with fascinating text and cartoon-style, though accurate, illustrations. Readers will learn a huge amount by absorbing the information but also because they’ll be keen to get out and look for themselves at what’s presented on the pages.

Not just for budding scientists, this book will open the eyes and catch the imagination of all who read it.
