'Unwin's evocative prose is a perfect match for the vivid illustrations. This will be a hit with birdwatchers of all stripes' Publishers Weekly

Author Mike Unwin invites readers on an avian journey around the globe, celebrating 80 of the world's most awe-inspiring birds and revealing their impact on our lives. From Namibia's sociable weaver, constructor of huge multi-nest 'apartment blocks' in the desert, to China's bar-headed goose, a high-flying migrant that crosses the Himalayas twice a year, each has a remarkable story to tell. Ryuto Miyake's exquisite illustrations grace every page, bringing to life this timely reminder of the ways in which birds need us, and we need them.
