Dr Amir Khan, NHS doctor, broadcaster, author and Vice President of The Wildlife Trusts

«Sophie has a warm tone of voice in this enjoyable and accessible read.»

BBC Wildlife magazine

«Pavelle has a lively mind and sense of humour ... [she] explains the science well and has done a serious amount of research.»

Simon Lester, Country Life magazine

Ceri Levy, Caught by the River

«A wonderfully refreshing look at the vanishing species around us, what they mean and why they matter.»

Benedict Macdonald, naturalist, wildlife TV producer and author of Rebirding

«Like the captured sunshine she describes persisting in a seagrass meadow even on a cloudy day, she [Pavelle] has captured a different kind of light here, that of youth and love and hope.»

Dr Amy-Jane Beer, Guardian Book of the Day

«Pavelle pulls no punches, giving the facts as they are, but weaving them together with a poetic touch and some light-hearted relief. It felt counterintuitive to be chuckling out loud while reading a book about such a bleak topic, but that is the beauty of Forget Me Not

Jeni Bell, British Wildlife

«A lively introduction to the nature crisis in the British Isles.»

Mannie Coe, author of brother.do.you.love.me

Claire Ratinon, author of Unearthed

«Engaging, compelling and more important than ever.»

Sarah Langford, author of In Your Defence and Rooted

«A lightness of touch, given to a serious subject: that's what makes this British journey urgent reading, for young and old. I loved this book — a moving story about what we're losing, introduced to me by my son, who urged me to read it.»

Clover Stroud, author of The Red of my Blood

«Pavelle's wit makes the book a joy to read.»

Robert Macfarlane, author of Underland

«This enchanting book could not be more timely: it brings much to inspire our future thinking, and is a joy to read.»

«Sophie Pavelle writes with the urgency and voice of a generation. Her commitment is matched with a fierce knowledge of conservation biology and policymaking, whose murky corridors are expertly navigated. Passionate, pragmatic and seriously funny.»

Gillian Burke, biologist, presenter and writer

«It's full of wonder and joy. And crucially, it's written in the voice of a friend [...] while there's wit and warmth flowing through each chapter, the message never stops being urgent.»

Country Walking

«Sophie Pavelle's book properly stands out in the increasingly crowded nature writing field. She writes powerfully about vital issues, in a totally fresh, funny and accessible way that is distinctively her own. Loved it.»

Kim Smith, Bury and West Suffolk magazine

«Seldom have I learned so much, while laughing out loud. A joyous but quietly angry book about the beauty of Britain’s wildlife, how we have failed it, how to save it, and how accessible it is by public transport. At the end I felt determined to see our most threatened species protected.»

Louise Gray, author of Avocado Anxiety

«From rare butterflies to bats and bumblebees, Sophie takes us on a breathless but strangely relaxing whistle-stop tour of Britain in search of some of our less familiar, fragile and fascinating wildlife. Charming, witty and moving.»

«A book about climate change with deep adoration for the natural world at its heart.»

Francesca Donovan, The Great Outdoors

«Packed with facts from the experts she meets on her travels, we learn a lot about the underdog species that have missed our attention ... This is Sophie’s first release, and like the species she discovers, it’s not to be forgotten.»

Tom Tivnan, The Bookseller

«A unique, brilliant and beautiful new way of writing and celebrating the good stuff, whilst reminding us of the precarity of it all […] Forget Me Not is fresh and funny, sharp and poignant; stop scrolling and read this book!»

Nicola Chester, author of On Gallows Down

«A lovely journey into our wildest places with the inspiring message: conservation works and we should let it.»
