Packed with incredible facts about the natural world and the animals that populate it, the whole family will enjoy the full-page spreads grouped into the categories of habitats, species and adaptations. The jacket of this large-format book unfolds to a huge wall poster showing the brilliant adaptations of a range of birds.
