Solomon, the legend goes, had a magic ring which enabled him to speak to the animals in their own language.

Konrad Lorenz was gifted with a similar power of understanding the animal world.

He was that rare beast, a brilliant scientist who could write (and indeed draw) beautifully.

He did more than any other person to establish and popularize the study of how animals behave, receiving a Nobel Prize for his work.

King Solomon's Ring, the book which brought him worldwide recognition, is a delightful treasury of observations and insights into the lives of all sorts of creatures, from jackdaws and water-shrews to dogs, cats and even wolves.

Charmingly illustrated by Lorenz himself, this book is a wonderfully written introduction to the world of our furred and feathered friends, a world which often provides an uncanny resemblance to our own.

A must for any animal-lover!
