LoveReading View on Flying the Nest The Early Days of Britain's Best-Loved Animals

An adorable set of animal portraits, the colour sketches catching the baby creatures in affectionate detail. Set out with an illustration on each page spread, accompanied by a short piece of text with details on the animal featured. Some of the creatures are easy to see like baby chicks and rabbits but there are also some lovely surprises, creatures we are most unlikely to see such as a fat little baby puffin or a baby dormouse. The format is just right, small and square, the illustrations perfectly presented on cream coloured paper. ~ Sue Baker
