This book is perfect for just about everyone who has ever asked themselves 'I wonder what that is?' as a mysterious insect strolled across their petunias.
It is invaluable to any nature loving person and is small, so will fit easily in a rucksack.
There are over 150 double page spreads with a full page of wonderful, bright, close up photos on the right and names and a short description / habits of all the creatures/plants shown on the left.
I am always getting phone calls from my friends asking to borrow it to find out what they have seen.
A really enjoyable buy!
