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? Unusual Creatures includes these answers plus hundreds more fascinating facts for curious minds, amateur zoologists, and anyone who has ever laughed at a funny-looking animal. Perfect for enthusiastic and reluctant readers alike, in class and at home.

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.
