This colourful and picture-filled book really makes geography interesting ... plenty of fascinating facts — Parents In Touch
There are many wonderful and fantastic facts. I liked the book because it gives young people a chance to learn. I give this 8.5 out of 10. — Frank, 11, Evening Echo (Cork)
The book would appeal to a wide age range and I am sure that many of the excellent photos will trigger some very interesting discussions. I am sure children will be able to dip in and out of this book and then look in wonder at the amazing photographs of rain forest creatures and jungle life. The author has also managed to pack a great deal into the 32 pages. I felt that this book had a great deal to offer both the reluctant and the more advanced reader. A great addition to any class library. — The School Librarian

Masculinity is being discussed more than ever before, in a range of contexts. People talk about 'toxic masculinity', claim that there is a crisis in masculinity or argue that we need to 'reclaim masculinity'. There have always been many ways of being a man, and many people who have claimed that there are correct and incorrect ways of being a man. This important and timely book looks at the big questions surrounding definitions of masculinity, and discusses where ideas of masculinity have come from and the effects of gender stereotyping. The authors and contributors share their experiences of and perspectives on masculinity and invite readers to think for themselves about the issues involved.
