Waterstones Says

A wondrously entertaining compendium of avian life from across the globe, An Atlas of Amazing Birds matches wry, witty descriptions to gorgeous, vibrant illustration to create the perfect coffee-table guide for passionate ornithologists everywhere.

Matt Sewell has made his personal selection of the most amazing birds from around the world and illustrated them in his dazzling style, accompanied by witty and informative descriptions and maps of every continent.

Did you know that the bald eagle holds the record for the world's biggest nest - weighing more than two tons? When the elf owl gets into trouble, it plays dead rather than fighting? The Adelie penguin can hold its breath for six minutes and leap up to three metres out of the water? Discover these and many more fascinating facts in this fabulous book.

Every bird chosen to appear in this book is amazing in its own individual way - birds that migrate thousands of miles, have strange and showy mating rituals, survive in extreme environments, are brilliant builders, are super-fast, super-brave or super-big!

Sections on each continent - Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia, North America, South America and Antarctica - include maps to pore over.

Travel the world to see magnificent eagles, resilient penguins, tiny hummingbirds, towering ostriches, stunning peacocks and many more. Colourful, clever, song-filled, strange and stunning - this book is a celebration of bird life!
