5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Book
By Jay on 9 November 2020
Absolutely incredible book filled with exquisite illustrations and loads of well-researched information.
You can tell that an enormous amount of love and care went into the creation of this book and it deserves all of the many accolades it has received since its release.

Sami Bayly has created a one of a kind book that anyone of any age can enjoy. It is so much more than a kids book. It's a book that will teach you to appreciate animals in a much deeper and more meaningful way. A lesson sorely needed in the world.
