We are all on Earth but for a fleeting moment, yet no two lives are the same. From the delicate mayfly, which lives for just a few precious hours, to the death-defying immortal jellyfish, this book about animal life cycles is a celebration of creatures big and small.
Beautifully written by bestselling children's author Lily Murray, this book explores lifespans across the animal kingdom. Beginning with the very shortest, and ending with the longest, learn about the lives of the incredible monarch butterfly, the mysterious axolotl, the grand Galapagos tortoise and many more in this uplifting and eye-opening book. It has never been more important to appreciate and understand the diversity of life.
Stunning illustrations by highly-commended artist Jesse Hodgson perfectly capture each animal in their natural habitat, making this the ideal gift book as well as educational.
