"This book is amazing, it tells you all about extinction and goes into details not covered in my school lessons so far. The illustrations are also detailed but also easy to understand... I love it!"

"The explanations and glossary are so detailed as are the illustrations. They’re so good, I’m looking at buying the rest of the series for my school library. The children are fascinated by this."
"I had not expected this book to be so interesting - that my son didn’t put it down at all once he started reading it. That is an excellent thing to be said about a non-fiction book."
