Media reviews

"[...] The text is punctuated by high quality B&W and colour drawings of the animals. The most striking full-page paintings, scattered every few pages through the book, are of birds and a few plants, although there is no text on these. This is just the book to give as a gift or to enjoy on a quiet evening with a glass of whisky (perhaps while wearing a pith helmet)."
- Peter Thomas, British Ecological Society Bulletin, August 2013
