Beautiful, informative and entertaining, this encyclopaedia of migrations - from blue whales, to arctic terns, to monarch butterflies - is a glorious gift for animal-lovers
Having covered Amazing Birds and Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Creatures with flair, acclaimed artist, illustrator and passionate bird-watcher Matt Sewell here turns his unique eye and brilliant brush-strokes to another of nature’s awe-inspiring phenomena - amazing migrations. Covering fauna (and flora) from all corners of the globe, this is a treasure trove of insights and visual delights that will have young animal-lovers poring over it for hours.
Featuring all kinds of animals - mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, and insects - Atlas of Amazing Migration is packed with fascinating facts delivered in an engaging, witty style. The painted lady butterfly, for example, is described as being “common as muck” but “a force to be reckoned with” before we learn about their epic 15,000 km cross-continental migration. The book also explains how such journeys are possible, with the inclusion of plant migrations (wild cherries, violets, and coconuts) an unexpected, interesting addition.
Matt Sewell is back with a sumptuous celebration of our planet's most extreme journeys. This is his own personal selection of the most amazing mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, insects and even plants that battle through the Earth's toughest conditions in order to survive. Follow flocks of arctic terns on their annual 40,000-kilometre journey between the Earth's poles.
Join the monarch butterflies on their famous pilgrimage from Canada to Mexico. Awe at wildebeest, humpback whales, salmon, dragonflies and more. Find out how they navigate themselves on their impressive journeys - chemicals, the sun and/or the Earth's magnetic field.
Gloriously illustrated in Matt's signature watercolours, and described with his usual wit and charm, this is one book for any animal lover to treasure.
