Books about animals will always pique a child’s interest, but this one’s just a little bit different as it focuses on all the weird and wonderful features animals have evolved to gain an advantage over the years. Tails, toes, necks, and noses all star in the most unusual ways!
“A delightful compendium of all the most unusual and unexpected features in the animal kingdom, from puzzling toes to weird ears, and all the other body parts in between! These creatures have strange features – but they all serve a very useful purpose! This charming and visually appealing book carries the underlying message that everybody and everything is strange and wonderful in its own way – difference should be celebrated!”
My gaze was instantly drawn to the vibrant, playful illustrations on the front cover of this brilliant book. The artwork throughout is of the same beautiful quality and is sure to spark the curiosity of any reader and encourage close examination.
There is so much to dip into, explore, and enjoy as you browse through the pages. And so much to discover! Did you know that a father Darwin’s frog gulps down its eggs and stores them in a special part of its neck? Or that a male hippopotamus has the longest teeth of any land animal – up to 50cm long? No? Then you know which book you need to go out and get yourself…
