The boldly styled animals…offer quirky fun on each page.
A menagerie of animals is introduced in this innovative read-aloud…There’s much here to devour. A delightful choice to whet youngsters’ imaginations while exploring the wackier world of wildlife.

The spare, high-contrast graphic style of this picture book make it an excellent candidate for small-group sharing, and the curious bits of information will bring many young naturalists and budding artists back to the pages again and again.
Fun, factual snippets about two dozen wild creatures combine with art that is sophisticated yet simple, uncluttered and kid-pleasing. … Superb, yet again.
