Description

This is the only planet in the universe that we know of where life exists at all. And it does in abundance! The animal kingdom is filled with unimagina-ble beasts, beyond anything we could dream up. It is a rich, vibrant world, awash with colour and brimming with life. Yet, despite the wonder that our planet inspires, species are going extinct more quickly than ever before, as one by one they vanish. We are discovering new species all the time, but we are also losing others, sometimes before we even knew they were there.

This book is a celebration of 43 remarkable and vulnerable animals, some well-known, others less so. From freshwater to oceans, forests, mountains, tundra and desert, grasslands and wetlands, hammerheads sharks, okapis, saolas, Gobi bears, pangolins, snowy owls many more appear to us on these rich and varied pages, in full colour, hand-drawn illustrations, alive and vivid in the reader's hands.

About the Author

Millie Marotta spends her days creating intricate nature-based illustrations in a studio by the sea in a little corner of West Wales. Growing up on a smallholding in the hills of rural Wales as a child, she was surrounded by nature in all its glorious forms. It was during these early years that she developed a bit of an obsession with the animal kingdom and later went on to study wildlife illustration. This fascination with the natural world remains at the core of her work today as does a love of pattern and intricate detail. Above all else her intention is simply to create beautiful work, which both captivates and charms.
