This is a wondrous book, flick to any page or read cover to cover. There are amazing illustrations that really give an amazing glimpse into the places listed. You could find yourself transported to Taal Volcano, flying over the Philipines and discovering deforestation. It's a little geographers dream.
About the Book
A fact-filled, colourful celebration of island wildlife, history, and culture, with volcanoes, rainforests, Komodo dragons, prison colonies and more!
Discover 100 of the planet’s most magical islands — their wildlife, trees, diversity, people, treasures, and more — in this beautifully illustrated book. From islands that have been taken over by animals to disappearing islands, islands made of shells, artificial islands, and even islands that were once prison colonies, Amazing Islands is a whirlwind tour of some of the smallest land masses in the world. Discover the Galapagos islands, home of giant tortoises, penguins, boobies of all colours. Or visit Jiangxin Park in China, a natural island with an awe-inspiring, giant bookshop. Islands can be home to giant cities, colonies of cats or crabs; they have been hideouts for pirates and have given rise to astonishing scientific discoveries. Amazing Islands celebrates island life in all its extraordinary diversity.
