MEDIA REVIEWS
The main aim of 'Those with Webbed Feet' is to introduce waterfowl to youngsters in their teens. It is bright and cheerful and easily competes with digital media, as a delightful thing to have in the hand. I can see this becoming a firm favourite to bring generations together over a shared interest. Along with essential information to understand and identify each species, the book's characterful and animated style is complemented by lots of Fun Facts, quiz questions and hand-drawn illustrations... We concur. It is a cracker and we look forward to more from Edward Giles. --British Waterfowl Association; This is a delightful book aimed principally at younger readers who have an interest in either watching or keeping waterfowl... Those With Webbed Feet is a good starting point for those with little or no prior knowledge of waterfowl either in the wild or in domestic collections. The material provided is informative and relevant throughout and offers the reader a good basic understanding of the habits and habitats of waterfowl to be found in the UK. - Dr Alan Woollhead, The Biologist --Dr Alan Woolhead, The Biologist; This really quirky book ... is a fact-filled treasure trove which asks to be dipped into or read cover to cover. I really like the style of the book with short notes about distribution, behaviour, habitat, voice, breeding and key facts for the main species. The notes are presented in a user-friendly way that should appeal to all ages. Edward's illustrations are gems in themselves. --Dr Nick Carter, Former Director of Development at BTO
