Planet Earth III

Planet Earth III


This is our Planet Earth. From the highest peaks to the mysterious seafloor, almost every habitat has been impacted by humans.

In this beautifully illustrated guide, you'll see our interconnected natural world as never before.

You'll meet venomous snakes that are welcomed into people's homes. Tiny treehoppers that form an alliance with bigger bugs. And crabs who like to hitch a ride on turtles' shells.

You'll travel around the globe, from massive caves to the depths of the ocean, and from snowy mountaintops to magnificent desert plains.

Discover the stories of life on Planet Earth and how we can work together to protect it. Produced in collaboration with BBC Earth, this stunning book is perfect for young readers who are curious about our natural world.
