The Zoo Quest Expeditions.

This book follows David Attenborough on his journeys to Guyana, Indonesia and Paraguay in 1954 to find rare animals for London Zoo, whilst filming for a new BBC show called Zoo Quest. This story follows David and his team while they visit local tribes, search for Komodo dragons and giant armadillos, all the while dealing with new terrain and unpredictable weather.

I love David Attenborough, so I was over the moon to get my hands on this book. Thankfully it didn't disappoint. This amazing autobiography is not to be missed.

I absolutely loved seeing the incredible efforts that David and his team went to in order to record and collect such amazing and diverse animals.

I was thoroughly amused reading about some of the wacky situations and experience that these men found themselves in.

While readers will find some of the methods that were used to collect the animals and travel and film, alright alright, readers will find a lot of the methods used throughout this book outdated, yet reading about these unbelievable things was an extremely educational experience.

I loved getting to read about these exotic places through David Attenborough's writing, his love and respect for nature and his desire to see these amazing creatures and environments protected gave this book an extra emotional layer. Getting to see different cultures collide and then work together under a common goal was a beautiful thing to read about.

David Attenborough's writing was so charming and inclusive, I really felt like I was listening to him tell me these stories in person, one on one. This inclusive feel made for a truly wonderful reading experience.

Adventures Of A Young Naturalist: The Zoo Quest Expeditions by Sir David Attenborough is a wonderfully written autobiography that will make you fall in love with the natural world one page at a time.
