A Song for Planet Earth takes us on a lyrical journey around the world and celebrates the beauty and glory of life on our planet. From under the polar ice to the hottest desert, from rainforests to city streets, animals and plants occupy every layer and niche of our planet.
In Antarctica, penguins glide through water and a seal breaks through the ice for air. In a South American rainforest twisting vines struggle upwards seeking sunlight. A volcano erupts in the West Indies bringing death and destruction. A tiger in the Indian jungle fiercely protects her young, while domestic cats prowl and hunt in an urban territory.
We are also taken deep below the sea to the rainbow-coloured coral reef of Australia, across to a carefully tended Japanese paddy field, and on to an African plain where clues to our past are uncovered.
Growth, decay, camouflage, and survival are all part of the infinite cycle of movement on Earth.
Stunningly illustrated by Rupert van Wyk, this is a vibrant visualisation of the wonderful wealth of living things that make up our planet Earth. (Source: back cover)
