            From tiny insects to sleek sharks and majestic elephants, this book invites you to explore the animal kingdom up close - from nose to tail. Whether you're interested in specific animal groups such as mammals or birds or have a passion for wildlife photography, this beautiful book... will delight, fascinate, and surprise. DK's elegant new introduction to wild animals is packed with dramatic photography that celebrates their beauty. Crystal-clear diagrams then explain how animals work and describe how they are adapted to do different things and to survive in different environments. The unique nose-to-tail approach, with chapters on different body parts, allows you to focus in on the beauty of the antenna of a moth, the flight feathers of a parrot, or the feeding tentacles of a jellyfish. Fauna also explores how we have depicted animals in art throughout the ages, from zoological drawings that recorded new discoveries to great paintings inspired by a deep connection to the natural world. With fascinating stories, such as how animals communicate, defend their territories, and attract mates, The Science of Animals offers an engaging introduction to the extraordinary diversity of the animal kingdom.

            This is the story of a family led to confront a crisis they had never foreseen. Aged eleven, their eldest daughter has stopped eating and speaking. Alongside diagnoses of autism and selective mutism, her parents slowly become aware of another source for her distress: her imperill...ed future on a rapidly heating planet. Steered by her determination to understand the truth, the family begins to see the deep connections between their own and the planet's suffering. Against forces that try to silence them, disparaging them for being different, they discover ways to strengthen, heal, and act in the world. And then one day, fifteen-year-old Greta decides to go on strike.

            We stand at a precipice - a point where the future is at stake. Humanity has come so far: ten thousand generations, each building on the work of their ancestors to reach the heights of culture and technology we see today. If we choose, we can continue this grand project, with eno...ugh time to end disease, poverty and injustice, and to fulfil our potential. But this future is at risk: for the first time, our power has grown so great that we have the ability to destroy ourselves. The Precipice is a clear-eyed look at the risks that we face, from the familiar, such as nuclear war and climate change, to the emerging, such as biotechnology and advanced artificial intelligence. It argues that ending these risks has become one of the most important moral issues of our time. What do we owe to the generations that follow us? This is an inspiring vision of human history, the legacy we will leave behind, and the steps we must take to work towards a brighter future.

            Greta is eleven years old, and she has stopped eating. She has stopped talking. And she has become fixated on the horrors of the climate crisis, which creep into news bulletins each night. Her parents grapple desperately, hopelessly, to make her better; her sister takes a turn fo...r the worse; day by day, their family life begins to unravel. Four years later, Greta sits outside Swedish Parliament. Her parents watch on as she eats vegan pad thai and chats with a journalist. She is ready for what's coming next, and so are they. They have allowed her to skip school. They have changed their habits. They have quit their jobs, and they have joined their daughter in her fight for the living planet - a fight which will change the world, and save their family. Scenes from the Heart is the remarkable true story of two parents and two daughters, who together have transformed the way we think and talk about our earth. Revealing the intimate, hitherto unseen impact of climate change on our children's and our own mental health, it is a passionate rallying cry for us all to wake up and see things differently - and then join them in the struggle for ourselves and our living planet.
