"A powerful new collection from a master poet"

-- Pie Corbett

"An exciting and thought-provoking celebration of all that is extraordinary in the natural world. Includes fascinating information about the creatures depicted. Combines poetry with contextualising factual information."

* Achuka *

"Philip Gross has chosen to celebrate some of the most unusual and unknown aspects of the natural world in this mesmerising anthology which had me wondering, learning, looking and so much more. Quite apart from being captivated by his poetic voice, I came away all the richer for what I learnt about worms, tardigrades, terns, even ivy!... It's a collection that works on so many levels."

* Reading Zone 5 star review *

"The poems in this dazzling new collection are rare, distinct and mesmerising as the creatures and landscapes he explores here. This is an imaginative, urgent and beautifully crafted collection."
