5.0 out of 5 stars just what i wanted 15 May 2011
By kathryn
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good guide to various animals you are not sure about, I liked the fact that it shows you actually photos of each animal not a drawing, also that it covers Europe , as i will be taking it to France.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy size and informative 21 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Perfect size to carry in your pocket or rucksack and is great to give some info on different animals native to this part of the world. You can get more information in other books but this is enough to start off with. It suits our children too as there is not too much in each page, yet enough to keep them busy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collins Gem- Wild Animals 23 Oct 2012
By Daisy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Collins Gem miniature guides are generally excellent, and Wild Animals by John Burton comes up to the usual high standard of other Collins Gem field guides. The books are attractively laid out, packed with information, and small enough to carry with you when out walking. The Collins Gem guides are ideal as gifts for children and adults. Highly recommended.
