Dr Hibernica's Compelling Compendium of Irish Animals

Author(s): Rob Maguire; Aga Grandowicz (Illustrator)


Giving loving and detailed information about the robins, puffins, and owls of the air, the toads, seals, and basking sharks of Ireland's waters, and the hedgehogs, otters, and deer who share the land, this book details 28 of Ireland's most compelling and iconic animals. The animals are introduced to the reader by Dr. Hibernica, a fictitious Irish zoologist who travels the country and knows everything there is to know about Irish wildlife. The Compendium is presented in the style of her notebook and field notes, with jokes and sketches throughout. The illustrator and author worked closely with Nicola Marples, Professor in Zoology at Trinity College Dublin, who shared her knowledge of the animals of Ireland and checked every fact--furry, fishy, or flighty--in the book.
