In my experience, books which contain humour, fearsome beasts and a host of fascinating facts always make for much sought after reads, with waiting lists forming in the classroom. Andy Seed just happens to be a master of this form, with his newest title being no exception.
Andy Seed is a Blue Peter Book Award-winning author. Formerly a primary school teacher, he has written a number of popular series for children and adults, including humorous titles for the RSPB, National Trust and British Museum. You can follow Andy on Twitter @andyseedauthor or via his website http://www.andyseed.com.
Imagine sitting down to interview some of the world’s most fearsome beasts – just you and your trusty tranimalator (don’t ask!) Well that is precisely what has happened in this book. Our intrepid author has got the real lowdown on what it’s like to be a majestic Bengal tiger or a yellow-eyed wolf.
The inventive Q&A format means that the creatures really come to life as polar bears complain about hot summers melting more of their ice and giant armadillos share their top tips for catching ants. Really engaging for younger readers or anyone who enjoys their facts with a dollop of humour.
To further whet your appetite, I have a sneaky peek of the introduction to the book for you all to get your claws into:
If you could interview any animal, what would it be, I wonder?
