Product description

Review

"More than informative, this ecological adventure calls for action."
-
Kirkus Reviews

"Delightfully entertaining . . . the book makes science both accessible and appealing."
- Cool Hunting

"Swim through the art on each page of this book, while soaking up the science. Rachel Ignotofsky brilliantly uses her skills to create the ultimate illustrated story of life on Earth, delivering another blow to the misconception that art and science occupy separate realms. This book is a delight."
- Megan Watzke and Kim Arcand
, authors of Magnitude: The Scale of the Universe

"This fantastic book combines Rachel Ignotofsky's instantly-recognizable illustrations with her passion for knowledge. While, on first glance, it may not look like a science book, it is absolutely jam-packed with fascinating, well-researched information. The format is great, too--each section stands on its own merit, but Rachel carefully and seamlessly intertwines them, weaving together the complex tale of life on Earth. The result is a very beautiful scientific treasure trove for anyone interested in the world's ecosystems."
- Laurie Winkless
, author of Science and the City

"Full of fun facts, quirky humor, and gorgeous illustrations, this is an accessible and richly informative book about a timely and important subject."
- Kate Moore
, New York Times best-selling author of The Radium Girls

"An essential book for every kid who is curious about science, nature, and how the world works."
-Andrea Beaty, author of Ada Twist, Scientist and Rosie Revere, Engineer

"This is an ambitious and informative book that is also great fun. It is visually stunning, a real pleasure to read, and well worth exploring."
- Tristan Gooley
, author of The Lost Art of Reading Nature's Signs

"Rachel Ignotofsky's latest book is a marvelous tribute to its namesake, planet earth. Together with delightful hand-drawn illustrations, Ignotofsky presents an informative text packed with interesting facts and curiosities about the diverse ecosystems that span the globe. The book is at once awestruck and awe-inspiring, managing to balance admiration for the natural world with passionate pleas for its protection, and is sure to captivate nature- and science-loving readers within and beyond its intended age range."
- Kelsey Oseid
, author of Whales and What We See in the Stars

"This book is a delight. It is filled to the brim with wonderful facts and diagrams, covering the flora and fauna of ecosystems from around the world, the cycles of nature, and our role in protecting our planet. The stunning illustrations make each page a true work of art. A joy to read."
- Owen Davey
, author of Bonkers About Beetles
