This is just such an adorable and charming book. I love it. I mean just look at the title: ‘A Charm of Goldfinches and Other Wild Gatherings Quirky Collective Nouns of the Animal Kingdom’ by Matt Sewell.

The illustrations are all land, air or water animals and they are just wonderful. Great detail and they really do pop.

The book has a few UK references which is not surprising.

The text is just enough information. In some you find some very cute moments such as a crocodile dundee nod, or the story about sharks. The joke about squirrels or rats…I will not spoil it all.

Its a small book yet charming and puts a smile on your face. You’ll flip through it a number of times. Once to really look at the illustrations, and then to read the text. And when its over you wish that there were some postcards to hang up. Charming just charming.
