Review quote

"'What a great way of introducing kids to our wild wonders.' Steve Backshall, presenter of BBC's The Really Wild Show 'When I was a kid I'd have definitely referred to Dr K... I can highly recommend this book for any budding wildlife adventurer.' Nigel Marven, presenter of ITV's Prehistoric Park 'A wonderfully original book.' Books for Keeps 'Budding wildlife enthusiasts will be thrilled to meet Dr K Fisher... Children will warm to its grooved-up readability, but far from dumbing down its readers, this book will wise them up.' The Independent"show more
