'This book is a thing of rare beauty' - David Walliams

Perfect for animal-lovers everywhere! A beautiful, large-format crossover book for all ages, this is the book natural-history illustrator Ben has wanted to read since he was a child.

Facts and descriptions provide insight into a curated collection of birds and animals - some endangered and some less so - told from the perspective of a detail-obsessed illustrator.

Fun to read together or independently, let the secrets of the animals on our planet come to life in vibrant detail.

'This is my love letter to Planet Earth; a celebration of her hidden species, from the bold and the beautiful to the interesting but ugly. And while not a complete list, I hope that these few give a glimpse of the outstanding diversity of nature' - Ben Rothery

'For wildlife aficionados . . . [ Hidden Planet ] is filled with stunning illustrations . . . The engaging text is full of intriguing details' - Guardian Children's Books of the Year

'Ben Rothery is an extraordinary illustrator of the natural world, and an inspiration to children and grown-ups to write their own love letter to Planet Earth' - Angels and Urchins

Also available: Sensational Butterflies
