I’ve praised this sequence of books earlier than (see right here), and I’ve to take action once more. They’re fantastically produced with numerous fantastic pictures and different pictures which might be fantastically reproduced and laid out on the pages. If you decide up one in every of this sequence you’re struck by its weight and, as you flip the pages, by its magnificence. The writer deserves quite a lot of credit score for making these wonderful-looking books.
However no matter the feel and appear, this can be a very partaking e book, because the writer writes nicely, clearly and with authority which is sprinkled with touches of humour.
Chapters cowl the biology and evolution of ants, the ants of the UK, interactions with different species together with our personal and data on tips on how to research ants (together with a really helpful (by the look of it) identification key). I enormously loved the chapter on Ants within the Panorama. The message of the e book is that though every ant is small, collectively they’re extremely quite a few and since they act collectively in social teams they’re surprisingly influential. All campaigners ought to do not forget that lesson – we could also be however ants individually however is usually a mighty power if we work collectively.
I didn’t suppose I wished to know a lot about ants however I used to be drawn into this e book by the tales that the writer tells and the best way he tells them. It’s a deal with.
The quilt? It’s pretty, and I’d give it 8/10 (after which I regarded and noticed that it was by Carry Akroyd and so I wasn’t stunned that it happy me).
