‘The Big Book of Beasts,’ by Yuval Zommer, beast expert – Barbara Taylor.

You’re going to go wild for this book of beastly brilliance!


Why do wolves howl at the moon?

Do hyenas really laugh?

Why do hippos love the mud?

You’ll find the answer to all these questions, and many more, inside this brilliant book, bristling with facts.

Featuring beautifully illustrated double-page spreads about each animal, it’s a treat for the eyes AND your brain.  There’s also a hidden paw print on each page for the keen-eyed amongst you to spot.


One of my favourite facts was about the honey badger.  Did you know that it produces a liquid so stinky that it can hypnotise a nest of bees so the honey badger can steal all the honey?

An absolutely fantastic addition to any bookcase!
