A great book that reminded me of my interest in natural history. It's written very well, full of mild humour and quiet instruction. Johnson doesn't lecture, but he illustrates and explains clearly and amicably. The art is pleasant and very skillful, and he alternates topics fairly well to avoid you losing interesting. A fine book for readers of any age. Best for patchwork reading, not something to plunge through. ( )

Nice nature micellany, perfect bathroom reading, and almost entirely appropriate in other parts of Europe as well. ( )

Really enjoyable; reminded me of my childhood days fishing for newts at Buriton pond and chasing butterflies on Portsdown Hill.
