Reviews

This is one of those special books with cross-over appeal. Tiny children will adore the illustrations, slightly older ones will learn fascinating facts and readers of any age will be moved by the message that we need to take better care of our beautiful environment. This is a gorgeously presented book. The cover is simply beautiful and every single page is a riot of vibrant colour as the author and illustrator take us on a journey around the world. [...] The text is at a perfect level for very young children with additional information added within the illustrations for those who want to find out more. [...] This large format hardback would make a very special gift for a child. It would be especially valuable in schools and is a must buy for primary school libraries. [...] This is a treat of a book and I would highly recommend it. * thebookbag.co.uk *
