Atlas of Amazing Birds Reader Reviews

Atlas of Amazing Birds

Rob Anderson

A brilliant, very funny, book about birds.

This is a very informative, descriptive book about birds from all over the world. Birds are grouped into the area where they come from. I found it useful that there was a map for each main area and list of the birds to be found there on the opposite page. I thought the book was more interesting than a lot of books on birds because the author/illustrator gives his opinions about all the various birds. The illustrations are very funny.

Some of the birds like the Western barn owl have huge eyes, some look very cute because of their eyes like the Vinous-throated parrotbill. The Black-necked grebe looks a bit evil with his small red ones. Some of the birds looks silly, especially the Ruff, who looks like he has got a coconut on top of his head. Some of the birds look grumpy and mean like the Elf Owl, who just seems to stare. Some of the birds look almost like cartoon birds. My favourite bird is the Northern Cardinal, who the author says looks like a ‘punk rocker’ with a mohawk. This is a great book which I would definitely recommend.

Beautifully illustrations and fascinating facts come together in this interesting atlas of birds. A joy.

This beautiful non-fiction text contains a brilliant selection of birds from around the world. Matt Sewell has selected common and more unusual birds from each continent. Each entry contains facts and nuggets of information about the birds as well as some helpful statistics. Beautifully illustrations throughout enhance this great book and the stunning endpapers and high quality of printed paper make this a special read. A great start for research and also just for pure pleasure. Joyous.

For bird lovers everywhere, this book is for you!

Ardent bird-spotter, best-selling author and gifted illustrator, Matt Sewell has put together a stunning collection of some of the world’s most amazing birds. Accompanied with fascinating facts, beautiful illustrations and witty descriptions, this book is enough to make anyone, young and old alike, into a new-found, passionate bird lover!

Conveniently broken down into the seven continents, discover, delight and devour all there is to know about birds as Sewell takes you on an unforgettable journey around the world as we learn about the penguin that can hold its breath for six minutes, about the lyrebird that can mimic a chainsaw and find out which is the only bird to hibernate!

From magnificent eagles to colourful toucans to even the world’s smallest owl and the world’s largest ostrich, this brilliant book has for sure made a bird-lover out of me.

Absolutely amazing book with the best bird pictures ever!

I loved this book! It was a big surprise to get it in the post, I love watching birds in my garden but this amazing book of birds taught me about lots of awesome unusual birds from all around the world. The drawings are wonderful. I’m going to try and copy some. Thank you for sending it to me and my sister (and my mum, she loves it too).

A lovely book to flick through and read. Amazing artwork and interesting facts! A must have for bird lovers and those wanting to learn more.

I really loved looking through and reading the intriguing paragraphs about different birds. The artwork is amazing! It makes the birds look real. The book tells you lots of interesting facts about birds and you get to learn their real names, where you can find them and other interesting things.

It's a lovely book to pick up and flick through. A must have for any bird lover of those wanting to learn more.
