Discover the wonders of the natural world and how scientists classify them with this beautiful, vintage-style series
Discover over eighty different types of birds from all over the world - some exotic, others more familiar. You will find them classified by species, from the Cuculiformes like the common cuckoo to Galliformes like the partridge and the junglefowl, among many others. Every bird is precisely identified by its common name and scientific name, and succinctly described with a fun fact. It is perfect for exploring the creatures great and small that make up the animal kingdom and how they are classified by the naturalists that study them.
The Illustrated Compendiums' beautiful illustrations recall the style used by naturalists and explorers such as Charles Darwin and John James Audubon. Children aged 7 and up will enjoy dipping in and out of these books, inspired by the fascinating illustrations and facts.
Virginie Aladjidi is an experienced French children's author.
Emmanuelle Tchoukriel is an experienced illustrator trained in scientific and medical illustration at the Estienne School in Paris.
Together they have created the Illustrated Compendiums series.
