Review quote

A bright, attractive book... One might argue that all the information is 'out there' on the internet and that recycling is a continuously developing industry, but it's hard to beat a clear and colourful book and the principles that this one espouses are unlikely to change significantly in the near future * English 4 - 11 *

About Victoria Munson

Victoria Munson has been fascinated by wildlife since she was 8 years old, when she helped her parents to rescue a kestrel with a broken wing. She joined the Young Ornithologist's Club (YOC, part of the RSPB) shortly after and spent many a happy weekend visiting Wildfowl and Wetland Centres, hand-feeding Canada Geese and adopting a Wigeon (Wilbur). Since then, she has made a study of butterflies, homed hedgehogs, worms and ladybirds, and is now enjoying a second childhood through introducing her own children to rockpooling, wildlife spotting and making minibeast homes.
