Wondering Around

Illustrated by Richard Jones
LIST PRICE $18.99

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.

Richard Jones grew up in Leamington Spa before moving down to Devon to study illustration at the University of Plymouth in Exeter and never went home again! After finishing his degree, he stayed on to complete a PhD. While working on his thesis, Jones got a “temporary” job in Exeter’s Central Library and somehow found himself working there for more than ten years. When not at his desk, he enjoys bobbing about in the sea, swimming in rivers, walking in woods, listening to audiobooks on the bus, and stroking the cat. He now works full time as an author and illustrator.
