From blackbirds, beavers and beetles to tawny owls, natterjack toads and lemon slugs. Every day of the year, winter or summer, in every corner of the British Isles, there's plenty to see if you know where - and how - to look. From encounters with the curious black redstart, which winters on our rocky coasts, to the tiny green snowdrop shoots that are the first sign that spring might be round the corner. And from the blossom-time and dawn choruses of April and May into the abundant noisiness of summer, where days start with hawker dragonflies and drowsy bumblebees and end with glow-worms and ghost moths; to autumn when in the early morning mist of London's Richmond Park male red deer lock horns in competition for a mate.

Nature is always full of surprises - whether it's the strange behaviour of clothes moths or the gruesome larder of the strike. Distilling two lifetimes' knowledge, expert insight and enthusiasm, award-winning authors and passionate naturalists Brett Westwood and Stephen Moss take us through the year, day by day, sharing the unexpected delights that we can experience in our skies, beaches, rivers, fields, forests and back gardens. There are all kinds of adventures waiting on your doorstep, any day of the year, all you need is Wonderland.

Westwood is a Springwatch consultant and Moss is familiar as author of The Wild Kingdom. Both have collaborated together before on the BBC tie-in titles Natural Histories and Tweet of the Day, whilst in Wonderland they remind us of the exotic abundance of British wildlife, right under our noses.

Wonderland is a beautifully-written love letter to the astonishing variety of Britain’s wildlife… Westwood and Moss keep the levels of eco-alarm just right, not ignoring the parlous state of nature but not making it into a misery-fest, either… one to keep by your bedside, suggesting what to look out for tomorrow.” – The Sunday Times 

'Vibrant, fascinating, poetic - a year in living things: all the things we love, all the things we wish we could, all the little things we step over and never know - the best of British wildlife from two superb naturalists and writers.' - Chris Packham

“Good gift for father in law”

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my father-in-law, a great nature and wildlife lover. He tells me it is a wonderful book, and he particularly enjoys the way it writes of each day in the year, so he can read it... More
