This book is a hit with my two boys (7 and 5 years old).  We cannot put it down.   We've had many "encyclopedia" like animal books but this one is our favorite.   The author has a good sense of humor and my boys cannot stop laughing at his jokes (True or False sections are the best). I am going to get few extra books and give them as presents to my boy's friends.
