Praise

Winner of the American Library Association’s Alex Award

“A veritable parade of eccentric animal profiles that make you laugh so hard you won’t even realize you’re learning a thing or two about niche distribution and adaptive camouflage.”
Wired (“Required Science Reading from 2016”)

“A bizarre collection of evolution tales . . . the weirder, the better.”
Entertainment Weekly

“A quick, fun read that’s . . . heavy on snark. . . . The book is packed full of fascinating facts that will both impress and creep out.”
Science News

“An entertaining look at evolution’s frightening billion-year arms race. . . . Simon’s wit, combined with the geniune eccentricity of his subjects, make this a fun and accessible book.”
Publishers Weekly
