WIN a signed copy of Lots by Nicola Davies

Lots is a stylish non-fiction picture book that conveys the magnificent diversity of life on this planet.

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.


Here at Walker HQ we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the launch of Lots than by giving away a copy signed by both Nicola Davies and Emily Sutton! Plus a beautiful limited edition Lots print. Five runners up will also get a limited edition print. To enter, just email with 'Lots' in the subject line before 31st May 2017. Terms and conditions apply.

"For five- to eight-year-olds, there’s another love song to the natural world from Nicola Davies and Emily Sutton, the team behind TinyLots: The Diversity of Life on Earth counts up from a single human child to species-rich spreads of submarine, jungle and desert landscapes – and warns that without due care, humanity will erode the world’s biodiversity down from “lots” to “one”. Clear, direct, involving text, coupled with vivid, delicate illustrations make for a truly special work of non-fiction." - The Guardian
