About this book

Full of stunning illustrations and incredible facts, My Book of Birds is a glorious celebration of birds. From majestic golden eagles and snowy owls to brilliant red crossbills and puffins to the tiniest of hummingbirds, My Book of Birds covers them all. Meet cormorants that can dive underwater for up to 30 seconds at a time, and ptarmigans whose feathers turn completely white in winter, so they can blend in with their snowy habitat. Beautifully designed, and with a debossed wibalin cover, this is an ideal gift for bird lovers of all ages! If you've loved Beautiful Birds, or The Genius of Birds, or Bill Bailey's Remarkable Guide to British Birds, then you'll love this.

Incredible collage illustrations from Geraldo Valério show a variety of feathered creatures in their natural habitats as they hunt for food, impress their mates, nest and care for their young. The concise, accessible text is ideal for children aged six and above, and provides information ranging from clever techniques for finding food to remarkable physical features to fascinating behaviours. But above all, Geraldo Valério shares his passion for birds in this lovingly created album, inspiring young readers with their beauty and the excitement of discovery.

Includes an introduction, glossary, index and sources for further information.

Media reviews

"[...] In conclusion, for parents looking to inspire their children or grandchildren, I warmly recommend this book. Adults who enjoy art of this style will also enjoy leafing through, as I did, and some of the facts (most of which are correct) may well be new even to an adult reader. For example I did not know, I must confess, that Solitary Sandpipers nest in trees, nor that pigeons feed their young with a kind of milk secreted from their crop."
– Ben Darvill, BTO book reviews

"An enchanting book"
–Joanna Lumley

"Full of amazing facts and beautiful clear illustrations. A book to inspire the young and indeed the old!"
– Alison Steadman
