’a captivating non-fiction book that celebrates the great diversity of life on Earth...This book also provides exposure to art and design at its best. Davey’s print-like textures and earthy colours are arranged in beautifully composed double- spreads. This is a book to peruse, to mull over and to enjoy, as much as a reference book full of detailed information. This is a timeless, information book to be treasured by all ages.'

‘This visual compendium of natural wonders is an absolute delight to behold, to hold, to browse, to enjoy and to learn from [...] a museum for your lap, a museum for the home, the classroom, the library, a world of knowledge and fascination at your fingertips, a world beckoning you in and waiting to be explored’
Armadillo Magazine

'The book itself is sitting proudly on the living room picture rails. To describe it as just a great piece of design work alone would be selling it short – it really is a prize title in the evolution of children’s non-fiction books.'
Smallprint Blog

'Since life appeared on earth, each animal and plant has evolved to look and behave in the way that gives it the best chance of survival. Natural World explores the way that habitats, plants and animals are connected and the way that all elements of nature work in harmony - as well as how humankind is now threatening its existence by ignoring that intricate interconnectedness. This large hardback (the book jacket also unfolds into a large, full-colour wall poster) is stunningly illustrated and designed in quite an adult way. It features a sophisticated language, terminology and visual style, and so will probably appeal to older children who are already wildlife enthusiasts. Adults will also love the design and detail of this extremely beautiful reference book.'
