Synopsis

The award-winning Curiositree: Natural World explores, through 67 exquisitely illustrated charts, the myriad ways in which plants and animals have adapted to survive.



Discover the interconnectedness of the natural world and learn why living things look and behave the way they do in a series of visually compelling information charts, maps and cutaways, all illustrated in a nostalgic, vintage style.



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. Use the coloured ribbons like a bookmark, or to mark your place so you can return to pages that you found especially interesting.



Celebrate the extraordinary resourcefulness and resilience of the natural world with amazing facts about:



Habitats, ecosystems and biodiversity

Migrations, from the wildebeest of Africa to the red crabs of Christmas Island

All types of camouflage, from predator-dazing zebra stripes to the fur of the Artic fox, which changes to white in winter to match the snow

Life in the rainforest, the 'lungs of our planet'

All sorts of seeds and their variety of ingenious designs

Life cycles of creatures, from butterflies to the curious axolotl (a type of salamander)



As the human species, Homo sapiens, are challenged now to find ways to live and survive in harmony with nature, curiosity will provide the answers. So, set out on your own adventure in this book, and discover why the natural world is worthy of your unending curiosity.

Amanda Wood began her career in illustration at the Natural History Museum, and went on to be the founding Editor and Publisher of Templar for more than 30 years. In her time there, she published and nurtured numerous Greenaway winners, and edited and wrote groundbreaking series such as The Ologies, which have sold over 19 million-copies worldwide. Today she writes and runs her own small press from her home in Surrey. Mike Jolley has worked as a Book Designer and Art Director in children's publishing for over 25 years. He is the author of Grunter - the story of a pig with attitude and more recently, I'll see you in the morning - a gentle lullaby illustrated by Mique Moriuchi. Mike also exhibits and sells artwork made from found and collected objects, under the name Box 2. It was during one of his many junk shop visits that the idea of referencing mid-century school information charts as a design approach first took shape for Curiositree. He lives on a cliff overlooking the English Channel. Owen Davey is an award-winning illustrator, living and working in the UK. His work has been published in every continent (except Antarctica), with picture books published in the UK, America, Australia, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Portugal, China and South Korea.
