In the Bush by Ned Barraud & Gillian Candler.
This duo complete a quartet of NZ natural environments after the Beach, the Garden and under the Ocean with this study of the NZ bush one of the most studied environments in NZ schools.
It is a simple yet comprehensive look at the plants, the insects animals trees, predators and introduced species in NZ’s native forests. Gillian Chandler offers some stunning facts such as stoats will kill even if they aren’t hungry and todays tuataras are not the same as their ancient ancestors.
Ned Barraud would have to be the best wild life illustrator in NZ. He mixes graphic illustrations with detailed portraits of plant and animal life.
A very informative book that would be a great asset in any school library and in the home.
