The Wonders of Nature - Ben Hoare


Every page reveals a surprising story from the natural world that you just

won't forget.


Discover the wonders of planet Earth and learn about some of the most amazing

animals, plants, rocks and minerals, and microscopic life that live here.

The storybook descriptions and close-up images let you discover the myths and

legends of living creatures and minerals, as well as key facts about their natural

history. Find out how the prowling jaguar uses spots to avoid being spotted, why

a sticky sundew means big trouble for insects, and what on Earth a radiolarian

is. From opals to orchids and tapirs to toadstools, this beautiful collection brings

more than 100 remarkable items from the natural world to life.


With a decorative foil cover, gilded edges, and a ribbon for keeping your place,

The Wonders of Nature is an irresistible gift for children who can't get enough

of nature.


‘Real-life marvels fill the pages of Ben Hoare's The Wonders of Nature, following

up last year's beautiful Anthology of Intriguing Animals. Hoare introduces

extraordinary plant life, from corpse flowers to ghost plants, as well as

tarantulas, rattlesnakes and wombats . His writing is funny, informative and

zinging with infectious enthusiasm, helped along by elegantly integrated

photography and lush illustrations from Angela Rizza and Daniel Long.’
