Description

Matt Sewell takes you on a world tour, exploring the most amazing birds in every continent.

Find out about enormous condors, gorgeous bird of paradise and monkey-eating eagles. There are peacocks, vultures, puffins, owls, robins, eagles, cockatoos, penguins, flamingos, cranes and many more. These are all amazing birds in their own individual way - birds that migrate thousands of miles, have brilliant showy mating rituals, survive in extreme environments, are super-fast, super-brave or super-big!

The book will be divided into sections on each continent - Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia, North America, South America and Antarctica - with sumptuous maps between them to pore over.

Matt Sewell writes in his characteristic humorous style that will make the reader laugh as they learn, and he illustrates in gloriously colourful watercolours.
