This compendium of amazing animals, plants, rocks and minerals, and microorganisms will wow children and many adults, too. With 100 remarkable items from the natural world, from orchids to opals and lichens to lizards, everyone will find something to be captivated by. Each plant, animal, and rock is shown both photographically and illustrated, and children will love poring over the detailed close-up images.

The storybook descriptions let you discover the myths and legends surrounding both organisms and gemstones, as well as key facts about their natural history. Find out how the prowling jaguar uses spots to avoid being spotted, why a sticky sundew means big trouble for insects, and what on Earth a radiolarian is. This beautiful treasury lets you find the things that interest you and uncover new favourites along the way. With reference pages packed with information you'll go away knowing something you didn't before, and you'll return time and again.

An attractive gift for children who can't get enough of nature, The Wonders of Nature is perfect for kids to explore by themselves or for bedtime stories.

Reviews for The Wonders of Nature

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 *
