A Nature Storybook about hummingbirds, beautifully told and illustrated.
“One of the prettiest works of non-fiction you are likely to see… It is ravishing.” The Sunday Times From Nicola Davies, one of the UK’s finest non-fiction writers, and from Jane Ray, one of the UK’s finest illustrators, comes and exquisite Nature Storybook about … hummingbirds! A hummingbird is smaller than your thumb and weighs less than a 20 pence piece – however you measure it, it’s tiny. But every spring, hummingbirds that have spent the winter in Mexico fly north to make the most of the warmer weather. They nest as far north as Canada and Alaska: a 2,000 mile trip! This is the story of one spring migration – of a tiny bird, its amazing journey and the people it meets along the way. “Jane Ray turns everything she touches to gold.” Daily Telegraph
