Teach your children about the animals of the forest with this fun and educational book. Five animals - a brown bear, wolf, squirrel, otter and deer - are explored through rhyme, pictures and pull-out cards to construct into 3D figures. With two spreads dedicated to each animal, adults will be able to read the short playful rhyme on each spread to children and look at the bright illustrations to teach them about their habits and environment. The inside of the dust jacket is printed full colour with a graphical representation of the animals' environment.

A firm favourite of V&A customers, Michael Michaud is renowned for his distinctive botanical-inspired jewellery. Taking inspiration from nature, Michaud creates moulds using actual leaves, branches, flowers or plants. The moulds are created around the botanical element, then heated so the plant matter burns away, leaving behind a beautifully detailed impression of the plant or flower on which it is based.
Creating moulds directly from nature, Michael Michaud’s exquisitely detailed pieces are made using a process similar to lost-wax casting, with actual plant matter encased, then heated and burnt away to form his moulds.
Michaud’s natural forms and textures are complimented with soft patinas on bronze, accented with pearls, beads, coral and stones.
