A stylish non-fiction picture book that conveys the magnificent diversity of life on this planet, from the award-winning team behind Tiny.

From the award-winning team behind Tiny: The Invisible World of Microbes comes Lots, a beautifully illustrated introduction to the concept of biodiversity for younger readers. There are living things everywhere: the more we look, the more we find. There are creatures on the tops of the tallest jungle trees, at the bottom of the coldest oceans, even under the feathers of birds and in boiling volcanic pools. So how many different kinds are there? One, two, three ... lots! With beautiful words from Nicola Davies and exquisite illustrations by Emily Sutton, this groundbreaking book is certain to enchant and inspire children.

  • A complicated subject explained deftly and illustrated beautifully.
  • The sequel to the bestselling Tiny: The Invisible World of Microbes, winner of the SLA Information Book Award (0–7 category).
  • Illustrations show over a hundred different kinds of animal.
