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!
