4 out 5

13 reviews

Readers are invited to travel across some of world’s driest landscapes and discover the remarkable animals and plants that survive in desert climates, both hot and cold. Along the way, they will encounter over 300 rare and little known plants, animals, reptiles, birds and insects, casting new light on desert environments and revealing the abundance of life underlying their barren image. Through fifteen bright and graphic desert landscapes the book looks in detail at unusual species, their tactics for survival, nocturnal desert life, the desert food chain, lethal creatures and degrees of dryness.



This was very interesting and I learnt a lot about desert animals and how they survived. The pictures were beautiful and also helpful. I also learnt about desert plants. I would recommend it to someone else who is interested in the environment and animals.

I really loved this book. I learned a lot about the animals and plants in the desert and the illustrations are so beautiful! I loved them all but my favorite is the coyote. I will look for more books by this author!

It had loads of cool facts that i like and some I didn't but most I did. For example a camel can drink a whole bathtub of water in 15 minutes.
