Be on the look-out for the wildest mammals with Agent Osprey as she explores the animal kingdom in search of all things fierce and friendly!

Mammals! includes a 1.8-metre-long timeline, featuring over 100 mammals from their first known forms through to their living descendants and a fascinating journal that looks into how they have survived and thrived. Mammals! is the latest entry in the Explorer series from What on Earth Books. Bugs! and Dinosaurs! are winners of a Parents’ Choice Silver Award 2018.


Nick Forshaw is an author and editor based in Berlin. He has written a history of the evolution of the dinosaurs, explored the way insects, arachnids and other creepy crawlies first developed, taken a close look at the way plants thrive on our green planet and investigated hundreds of different species of mammal that have evolved on planet Earth.

William Exley divides his time between writing and illustrating graphic novels – including Golemchik (Nobrow Press) – and illustrating children’s nonfiction. Plants! and Mammals! are his second and third titles for What on Earth Books.


…written in partnership with the British Natural History Museum, ensuring authenticity in its text, and there are more than 100 mammals featured. As a great bonus, at the end of the book there is an eight page, 1.8 metre fold-out timeline which would grace any wall.
