LOVEBIRDS AND OTHER WILD SWEETHEARTS

LIZ TEMPERLEY    Book Number: 88223    Product format: Hardback

The southern Rockhopper penguin who travels hundreds of miles when it's time to mate, pairs are drawn together by the mystery of love. The Malagasy giant rat finds home sweet home in an underground burrow and finds peace and quiet at night. The boisterous migrating birds, Canada Geese experience the world together and make life an adventure. The gibbon's love life can be thrilling and their lovesong can be heard half a mile away. The California Mouse, French Angelfish, the black-backed jackal, the prairie vole, the Laysan albatross, the black vulture, the sun parakeet with their vibrant colours and small acts of intimacy making their bonds grow stronger, the scarlet macaw who will play house with two partners before settling down with 'the one', the whooping crane, the tiger-snout seahorse who puts on a display of finery by changing their body colour and swimming in synchronicity over several days or the good old guineafowl, the male of which puts on an athletic display to attract partners and prove their ability to protect their families. Barn owls, flamingos, osprey and other species stay together for their whole lives and if separated they pine just like humans do. They even sleep with their faces turned towards one another. A special little book which shows what the animal kingdom can teach us about romance and the lasting power of love. Exquisite watercolour artworks of each species, 96pp, colour. Would make a beautiful gift book with its gold embossed cover.
