Product description

Review

In the same gilded, deluxe format as last year's An Anthology of Intriguing Animals comes a compendium of 100 remarkable items from the natural world, each showcased in photography and illustration. ― The Bookseller

Real-life marvels fill the pages of Ben Hoare's The Wonders of Nature, following up last year's beautiful Anthology of Intriguing Animals. Hoare introduces extraordinary plant life, from corpse flowers to ghost plants, as well as tarantulas, rattlesnakes and wombats . His writing is funny, informative and zinging with infectious enthusiasm, helped along by elegantly integrated photography and lush illustrations from Angela Rizza and Daniel Long. ― The Guardian

...it is an absolute spectacle, it is stunning ― Fun Kids Radio

Along with surprising animal facts, there is plenty of information about plants, rocks, minerals, gemstones and micro-organisms. ― Bristol Post

This is an incredible book to inspire and inform a love of the wonders that surround us. ― Juno

Its gilded edges and embossed cover make this a special gift for a child who has a growing interest in the natural world. ― Carousel

If expectations are raised by the gorgeous, gilded cover, what lies within doesn't disappoint. ― BBC Wildlife

5.0 out of 5 stars A breathtakingly beautiful and fascinating book for all ages
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 November 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
