Why might insects hold the key to resolving some of our biggest environmental challenges? Which are the most important species in the UK? And what would happen if they were to face extinction? These are just some of the big questions tackled in a fascinating and immersive new audiobook, written and narrated by the nation’s favourite insect expert, Dr George McGavin.
In All Creatures Small and Great, the explorer, TV presenter and leading authority on biodiversity and entomology zooms in on nature’s smallest miracles and explores the wonders of insect life like never before, revealing why it’s time to start loving and understanding insects if we want to save ourselves.

Taking listeners on a rich audio journey through 3D soundscapes and awe-inspiring insights from some of the best-loved names in natural history, this unique work, written exclusively for production as an audiobook and containing rich audio-only features, shows the colossal ecological, climactic and cultural impact of insects and explains why we depend on them for our very survival.
Containing exclusive interviews with other leading experts, scientists and celebrity insect-lovers - including Sir David Attenborough, Alison Steadman and Jane Horrocks – George and his guests debate how insects support the ecosystem, how they pollinate, recycle and reproduce, while revealing what insects have done for humans and how we can protect them and reverse damage to their environments.                                                                                                                                     
In addition to reimagining the traditional audiobook format by embracing podcast-style content, All Creatures Small and Great also allows listeners to experience the insect realm up close-and-personal, through relaxing and absorbing binaural soundscapes recorded in bee-filled meadows, along cliff paths and in coastal caves, at locations around the country.
Dr George McGavin said: “Insects are irreplaceable and indispensable. Lose insects and you lose the heart of the natural world. At a time when we are losing biodiversity faster than ever before it’s never been more vital to comprehend the giant impact of nature’s smallest creatures. I want to inspire love and curiosity about the insect world and I hope this audiobook will get people looking, listening and learning about insect life in a new way. Understand insects and you will come to love them”
