Open your eyes to the wonders of Irish nature

For back garden adventurers and countryside explorers! Open your eyes to the wonders of Irish nature.


Naturama is a breathtakingly exciting new book that introduces you to Ireland’s flora and fauna with every changing season. Beautifully written by accomplished writer, Michael Fewer, and skilfully illustrated with Melissa Doran’s captivating drawings, Naturama is a book which will encourage every reader, young and old, to get out there and see what they can find.


Each page is a discovery of the magic of nature right on your doorstep, from the back garden to the local park and the countryside. Even the smallest garden is a vast canvas of nature with its worms, insects, flowers and birds.


Listen to the blackbird’s song, spot an madra rua in your local town, discover why the ash tree is good for making hurlies, count a snail’s 27,000 teeth, watch stags fight and spot jellyfish at the seaside, laughing as you discover the meaning of their Irish name, smugairle róin!


It’s time to get kids away from the screens and into the world, put your boots on – it’s time to go outside!


Naturama will be published by Gill Books on Friday 13 May 2016, priced at €22.99.
