With humor and flair, Michael Hearst introduces the reader to a wealth of extraordinary life-forms. Which animal can be found at the top of Mount Everest, 10,000 feet under the sea, and in your backyard? Which animal poops cubes? Which animal can disguise itself as a giant crab? These fascinating facts and hundreds more await curious minds, amateur zoologists, and anyone who has ever laughed at a funny-looking animal.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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.
