My 8 year old daughter was very engaged while reading this book. Very interesting details and funny. Highly recommend.

Great find!! Funny, loads of fun facts to encourage children and adults to learn more about these animals. If you love a good laugh and love learning about animals, this a terrific non-fiction, but looks like a graphic novel, book for all ages.

This nonfiction book mixes lesser-known facts about animals you never hear about with silly cartoon illustrations. This book will be engaging for preschool and elementary age readers, while mixing in a little bit of silliness.

Funny and of course informative, with excellent caricatures of not so well-known, but just as worthy animals , some endangered, all curiosities we rarely hear about: The cute and toothy numbat, the elusive sand cat, and the ubiquitous crabeater seal, to name just a few. And beware the mean tempered onager!
