The Beauty in the Beast is a delightful portrait of some of the UK's best-loved wild animals and birds and the colourful enthusiasts who champion their causes. Meet the water vole-woman from Shropshire, the owl-man from Somerset and Gordon, the dancing toad-fancier. These and many other fabulously engaging characters carry a deep knowledge of their chosen species within a distinctly quirky shell. Other animals making an appearance include otters, bats, dolphins, dragonflies, foxes and adders. Hugh Warwick, animal enthusiast and hedgehog fanatic, writes a series of affectionate and lively homages to the animals of the British Isles, composed of fieldwork and interviews with the people who love and conserve them.

Críticas:

'A delightful, funny and enlightening read. I can't think of a more enjoyable way to be reminded that we don't need to travel the world to find amazing animals: the exotic and the surprising are right here on our doorsteps' --Gavin Pretor-Pinney, author of 'The Cloudspotter's Guide'

That s typical of Hugh Warwick s lovely, easy, humorous style. His book works on so many levels: as a portrait of British eccentricity, as an informal, highly selective guide to our native fauna, and quietly but angrily, as a polemic on the destruction of habitat and on the terrible mess we have made of our countryside. --Daily Mail

A few years ago, Hugh Warwick achieved a modest success with 'A Prickly Affair', a charming if slightly batty book about hedgehogs and people who like hedgehogs. With 'The Beauty in the Beast', he expands this basic idea to take on 15 wild creatures and their experts people who have taken 'one or two steps outside the bounds of what most people consider normal'. He hopes they will convince him 'of the beauty locked away within their chosen beasts , whether bats or dolphins' --The Independent

Biografía del autor:

Hugh Warwick is an environmental writer and photographer whose work has appeared across print media from BBC Wildlife and New Scientist to the Daily Telegraph - for whom he was unofficially hedgehog correspondent for a while - to radio documentaries for BBC Radio 4 and his appearance as the 'Eco-Worrier' on Fred McAuley's Radio Scotland show. He was also the field producer on Robert Greenwald's film 'Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price'. Hugh has studied hedgehogs, off and on, for over 20 years, and has most recently been responsible for stopping the great hedgehog massacre of Uist in the Outer Hebrides.
