Review quote

This is an incredible book to inspire and inform a love of the wonders that surround us. * Juno * Along with surprising animal facts, there is plenty of information about plants, rocks, minerals, gemstones and micro-organisms. * Bristol Post * ...it is an absolute spectacle, it is stunning * Fun Kids Radio * Real-life marvels fill the pages of Ben Hoare's The Wonders of Nature, following up last year's beautiful Anthology of Intriguing Animals. Hoare introduces extraordinary plant life, from corpse flowers to ghost plants, as well as tarantulas, rattlesnakes and wombats . His writing is funny, informative and zinging with infectious enthusiasm, helped along by elegantly integrated photography and lush illustrations from Angela Rizza and Daniel Long. * The Guardian * In the same gilded, deluxe format as last year's An Anthology of Intriguing Animals comes a compendium of 100 remarkable items from the natural world, each showcased in photography and illustration. * The Bookseller *
