“A Sketchbook of Animal Survival” is a real feast for the eyes, exceedingly informative and captivates the reader with a very successful mix of wonderful sketches and illustrations together with answers to questions that children and young people ask – and adults cannot answer.


 


Why don’t baboons live in trees? Why do swarms of flying ants appear each year? Are there hummingbirds in France, or was it just a hawk-moth? Is the relationship between swifts and parasites really advantageous?


 


I really liked this book: it encouraged me to reflect on our planet’s fauna and its interaction with mankind, and renewed my respect for the overwhelming beauty of creation. Highly recommended!


 

A Sketchbook of Animal Survival

Martin Knowelden

Description

This is a ‘Question and Answer’ book with a difference. It’s as if you’ve been invited into the artist’s studio and he’s personally answered your questions on his drawing pad with an artistic scribble or two that slowly builds up into a fascinating illustration of the interconnected nature of the animal world. Wildlife artist and author Martin Knowelden answers questions he is frequently asked in his own eclectic way, with a variety of sketches, labels and completed drawings intertwined with his explanations – which always consider the broader picture as well as the simple answer.
