This charming book, first published in 2014 but now reissued in a larger size to give the author’s beautiful images even more chance to shine, features 50 quintessentially British birds and animals painted by Hannah Dale in her uniquely quirky, characterful style. And many of these species also live in North America, or have a close cousin here.
From the red deer to the harvest mouse, from the sparrow to the barn owl, these favorite creatures are brought to life by this award-winning artist, really bringing out the character in each creature. Additional smaller pictures include their tracks and feathers, to help you identify where they’ve been, even when you can’t see them. The author has also provided insightful and entertaining text to accompany each animal portrait, and it all adds up to an irresistible gift package for any nature lover.
