Waterstones Says

Peering through the undergrowth to uncover the quirky, unusual and just plain weird about flora, fauna and wildlife, The Wonders of Nature reveals all manner of bizarre trivia about everything from jaguars to orchids via tapirs and the occasional radiolarian. Sumptuously designed and utterly addictive, this is a book that will bless your bookshelves forever.

Every page reveals a surprising story from the natural world that you just won't forget.

Discover the wonders of planet Earth and learn about some of the most amazing animals, plants, rocks and minerals, and microscopic life that live here.

The storybook descriptions and close-up images let you discover the myths and legends of living creatures and minerals, 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. From opals to orchids and tapirs to toadstools, this beautiful collection brings more than 100 remarkable items from the natural world to life.

With a decorative foil cover, gilded edges, and a ribbon for keeping your place, The Wonders of Nature is an irresistible gift for children who can't get enough of nature.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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 

'If expectations are raised by the gorgeous, gilded cover, what lies within doesn't disappoint.' - BBC Wildlife
