About The Book

What do you wonder when you wander outside? This lyrical picture book reveals the creativity and curiosity that comes from exploring the outdoors.

From mysterious footprints on a forest path to mystifying reflections of water on sand, nature has a way of making us curious. Wondering Around is a deliciously woven celebration of how wondering about one small thing in nature can lead to infinite discovery.

About The Illustrator

Born in Warwickshire, Richard Jones has been living and working in Devon for over 20 years. After leaving university with a degree in graphic design and illustration, he stayed on a little longer to complete a PhD. He spent several years working in a busy children’s library, issuing and shelving other artists’ picture books before one day wondering if it wasn’t about time he had a proper go at creating one or two himself! He now writes and illustrates from the smallest room in his home. Across the roof tops of Exeter, and between the rounded Devon hills, he can just about make out the distant sparkling sea.
