Review by: Christopher J Attwood, 16 August 2011
'This is a really beautiful book to look at and read. Perhaps given that there are a good deal more than 5,000 species of plants and animals around, perhaps DK might consider publishing a second volume? Can I also suggest that explanations of the scientific names of the plants and animals should be included? DK, The Natural History Book is a wonderful read.'
