Such a vital part of the natural world, amphibians are lucky to have this artist on their side.” – Jennifer S. Holland, New York Times bestselling author of Unlikely Friendships and Unlikely Loves

“a beautiful and unusual amalgam of well-explained science, passionate and reasoned advocacy, lyrical and evocative personal accounts (from childhood in Scotland to an emergency room in Madrid to tropical rainforests at night) and handsome coffee table adornment. I love everything about it.” Sydney Morning Herald


“remarkable…stunning” – The Guardian

“…full of passionate scientists, wild landscapes and exquisite pictures of these luminous creatures that for once are getting the attention they deserve.” – The Economist

“I cannot recommend this book more highly…Robin Moore is an amazing photographer and storyteller with an extraordinary story to tell about his mission to find the world’s rarest amphibians.” – Lucy Cooke

“The photos and writing tell a big story – one that engages, inviting us to follow.” – Wendy Townsend, author of Lizard Love and The Sundown Rule
