Lots The Diversity of Life on Earth

Written by Nicola Davies

Illustrated by Emily Sutton

Lots The Diversity of Life on Earth Synopsis

Winner of the Margaret Mallett Picture Book Award, as part of the English 4-11 Picture Book Awards. From the award-winning team behind Tiny: The Invisible World of Microbes comes Lots, a beautifully illustrated introduction to the concept of biodiversity for younger readers. There are living things everywhere: the more we look, the more we find. There are creatures on the tops of the tallest jungle trees, at the bottom of the coldest oceans, even under the feathers of birds and in boiling volcanic pools. So how many different kinds are there? One, two, three ... lots! With beautiful words from Nicola Davies and exquisite illustrations by Emily Sutton, this groundbreaking book is certain to enchant and inspire children. Clear, direct, involving text, coupled with vivid, delicate illustrations make for a truly special work of non-fiction. - Guardian
