5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting & encouraging introduction to the marvels & satisfaction of wildlife watching
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 February 2020
I look forward to Simon’s column in the Sunday Times each week, and I must confess, I bought this as a gift for A N Other and kept it for myself!

It is a slightly different approach to the norm in potentially imparting the fascination of wildlife watching, written with obvious passion, and I think it would be fair to say that the style may not appeal to everyone. But the general message may.

Unusually, each chapter opens with a short quote from a famous author, including C. S Lewis, J. K. Rowling & Tolkien. The writing that follows aims to qualify the reason for the quote, and anything that starts & closes with ‘The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe’ will get my attention!

From Chapter 23: ‘DEEP MAGIC FROM BEFORE THE DAWN OF TIME’:

🦁 ‘… ‘It means,’ said Aslan, ‘that though the witch knew the Deep Magic, there is a magic deeper still which she did not know. Her knowledge goes back only to the dawn of Time’.'

&

🦋 ‘…You can savour this magic: recognising the song of a song thrush, finding a slow worm, noticing that a deer has crossed your path, seeing a small tortoiseshell butterfly flying past intent on its own urgent business, noticing a robin drinking from the plastic pond you installed yourself. All these things enrich you, but even as you enjoy them you are beginning to be aware of a deeper truth. These things you sought are only the beginning. They are the symptoms of an altering condition…’

Measuring around 13.5 cm x 21.5 cm x 2 cm, the hardback is dressed in the most gorgeous colourfully illustrated dustjacket, with a front cover quote from Chris Packham:

🦋 ‘Such a good idea’

The white lettering for the titling & author’s name is slightly raised, following through to the spine.

Inside, it is simply black & white across 198 good quality, matte finish pages, split over 23 chapters, with delightful little illustrations, also black & white, from Cindy Lee Wright, accompanying the descriptive text.
