Wondrous, capacious and strange
Utterly extraordinary book: glorious and genre-bending; a spell-book of species that entranced me from its first page... A celebration of nature's astonishing variety - and a warning as to what we are so rapidly losing
Wonderful, beautiful and engrossing... a delight
