This beautiful book was the brainchild of Lynne Chitty who continues to work tirelessly on the project. She was joined by wildlife artist Gary Hodges and conservationist / photographer Dave Currey to help compile and oversee the book production and publicity. The book was designed by Paul Whymant-Morris, who has over 30 years experience of working with top agencies, big name pop stars and numerous books, all designed with care and attention to detail. The book was printed in the UK by Emmerson Press who have supported wildlife charities for over three decades. They generously donated their printing costs, saving this project at least £8,000.
"The words and images in this fascinating book will transport us all into a world where kindness
and beauty can embrace us all – if we open our eyes and our hearts."
Dame Virginia McKenna DBE, Co-Founder, Born Free Foundation
"My favourite animals to watch are sloths and sifakas. Who could fail to love a three toed sloth with its Lone Ranger mask, Harpo Marx grin and under active metabolism, and the sight of sifakas bounding and leaping sideways never ceases to make me slowly sink to the ground in silent merriment"
