From the unique mind of comic master Ricky Gervais comes… 3-D Flanimals! The ghastly stars of a wildly popular book series are about to pop up everywhere. (Age 5 and up)
They’re grotesque. They’re absurd. They’re so ugly they’re cute – and they could only be spawned by the mind of award-winning comedian Ricky Gervais. From a planet far away, these bizarre and whimsical beasts – from the ferocious airborne Bletchling to the badly behaved Grundit to the fatally timid Splunge – spring to life in the droll and off-the-cuff prose of a writer who some may liken to a latter-day Edward Lear. Then again, some may find these grossly amusing creatures simply-gross. And whose fault is that? Just remember: don't pull a tab just because you've been told to!

"Even though they’ve sold millions, won awards, and are currently being made into a Hollywood blockbuster, I’ve always thought that FLANIMALS lacked a certain poppy-upness. That is not a problem anymore." — Ricky Gervais — Quote
