Steve Bloom, distinguished wildlife photographer, and Gill Lewis, author of the acclaimed children’s novel Sky Hawk, offer a spectacularly illustrated double presentation for lovers of animals and birds about the creatures that have inspired their work.
Bloom was born and raised in South Africa but now lives in the UK. He is the author of many photography books including Living Africa and Spirit of the Wild, and his latest children’s books My Favourite Animal Families and My Big Cats Journal. Sky Hawk, which has been nominated for the 2012 Red House Book Awards, is Lewis’s first novel. It is a wildlife adventure that tells of the battle to protect an osprey through the eyes of children.
