From colossal condors to polychromatic peacocks, The Atlas of Amazing Birds celebrates winged creatures through joyful watercolors and well-researched, humorously told tales of their habits and habitats. Some birds migrate thousands of miles, others display showy mating rituals. Some survive in extreme environments, others are fast, brave, or big! Organized by continent, the book features maps of migratory patterns across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia, North America, South America, and Antarctica, where our feathered friends live in all sorts of interesting places--in gardens, amidst waterways, and along byways.


Matt Sewell is an avid ornithologist, and this is his fourth book about birds. He lives in Shrewsbury, England, and is also the author of The Colorful World of Dinosaurs.


Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews:

"Appreciative and informative. Enchanting, indeed. An invitation to a world of ornithological wonders."

School Library Journal:

"Tackling an entire class of animals is a daunting task, but this book, neatly organized by continent, rises to the challenge. Each section has a map and a small index of species. There is a short entry with a full-color illustration for each species. Useful for projects, entries include the animals' scientific species name and details such as size, diet, behavior, and how their environment is impacted by humans. Overall, a very readable and beautiful book. A charming compendium on the world's birds."
