This is such a cute book! The photography is really well done, and I am so jealous of Villager Jim’s garden and all the amazing creatures he gets to see! The captions for the photos in this book are hilarious and sweet, and I found myself smiling every time I turned a page! It is so wonderful to see someone who is so in tune with nature, and the respect he has for all living things is just nothing short of amazing! Wonderful book for wildlife/garden/environment lovers!
★★★★★ Villager Jim's Garden Wildlife is a photography book that captures a very British country garden and its regular inhabitants. So regular, that many of the birds are named. While the subjects are ordinary, the pictures are anything but. The pictures are beautiful and very inspiring. Especially, for some of us amateur photographers that feel we run out of subjects. While this is obviously not the average backyard, it truly inspires to dig deeper into into my own garden and perhaps work on my patients rather that constantly migrating for new places to photograph.Michelle McMenamin, GoodReads

The Garden book is based around Jim's garden and follows the same format. The photographs of garden birds are some of the best I have ever seen and other wildlife are also present. This book made me want to visit Jim's garden, the glimpses of it are tantalising.The BlackBerry Garden, Alison Levey

Put simply, this volume is a collection of pretty animal, insect and bird photographs. It is likely to appeal to readers who like such pictures (especially as they are of ‘British’ creatures), and who aren’t interested in the ‘technical’ details concerning them. Fans of specific bird and animal species may also find the photographs worthy of perusal. Expatriates wishing to recall the ‘creatures’ of their childhoods (or to show their children or grandchildren) may also find it of interest.NZ Crown Mines
We've been following Villager Jom for ages on Facebook, and always been impressed with the quality of his images and their subject matter. This new book, published by Pen and Sword, is a triumph of wildlife photography, of a huge variety of garden birds, together with wild and domestiacted animals in Jim's "garden", which looks to be fairly substantial! A stunning book, a brilliant reminder of how you should always keep your camera handy...Books Monthly
