An artfully playful collection of unexpected and remarkable facts about animals, illustrated by Swedish artist Maja Säfström.
Did you know that an octopus has three hearts? Or that ostriches can't walk backward? These and many more fascinating and surprising facts about the animal kingdom (Bees never sleep! Starfish don't have brains!) are illustrated with whimsical detail in this charming collection.
This book was a delight!! I had a blast reading through all the facts and perusing the wonderful, quirky, fun illustrations. I also shared it with my husband and one year old son, and they both enjoyed it as well. I am guessing about my son's opinion, but based on his squeals and patting at the pictures he seemed to like it.
A few examples of what you may find between the pages:
This is a quick, short, little book to flip through and check out the accompanying illustrations. It was a cute way to learn some new trivia that I can amaze and astonish my friends with, including the fact that penguin poop in some parts of Antarctica can be be seen from space, or that swifts can fly nonstop for 6 months! This book will definitely boost your trivia knowledge, and keep you entertained.
