—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Walton’s photo-realistic charcoal portraits are exquisitely rendered, and the decision to depict several from a head-on perspective ensures that readers will make direct eye contact and empathize with these creatures…this handsome offering makes an excellent introduction to this topic.
A large part of its allure relies on its large size and the conscientious design of the pages…It’s beautifully executed.
A stunning portrait of beautiful creatures in a book with a strong environmental message.
