5.0 out of 5 stars A breathtakingly beautiful and fascinating book for all ages
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 15, 2019
I love this book. We got "An Anthology of Intriguing Animals " last year and loved its classy feel and fascinating facts. We were really looking forward to this being released and haven't been disappointed. It is simply stunning - gorgeous artwork, beautifully produced and well made with quality pages that are gold edged. This gives it a very expensive and sophisticated look. It looks great on our coffee table and has been commented on by many visitors.

The writing is very engaging - full of fascinating facts and insights presented in bite sized chunks. Although aimed and written for children readers in our house of all ages have enjoyed reading this and dipping in and out of it. I am 43 and have learned so much!!
Wonders of Nature is a good title as the subject matter is broad, more so than most other nature books. In addition to plants and animals this book covers rocks and minerals and microscopic life. These would not always be subjects to grab my attention but the writing is excellent and fascinating. Who knew that microscopic water bears are everywhere and are the toughest animals of all - being able to survive being frozen, boiled, show and starved of water?!
When I bought further copies in waterstones ( sorry, amazon) the lady at the till said that this was her favourite book of the year and I can see why. I have stocked up for Christmas presents and for myself and know that I have secured myself a great gift that will be well loved for years
