New Zealand is a land of rivers and lakes, and such an abundance of fresh water provides an environment rich in wildlife. There are few children who would find themselves far from a freshwater stream or river, with the opportunity to discover birds, insects, fish and other species. All About New Zealand's Freshwater Life, written and illustrated by artist, children's book writer and nature lover Dave Gunson, introduces around 60 of our most interesting or spectacular water creatures and plants. Each page features one large or two or three smaller illustrations accompanied by about 100 words. All About New Zealand's Freshwater Life is the latest title in the 'All About' series of illustrated children's nature books from Dave Gunson and New Holland, which to date include Birds, Plants, Insects and other Creepy-crawlies, Seashore, Sea Life and Wildlife of the Past.
