World’s Wackiest Animals (Lonely Planet Kids)
There is not much in the world that interests kids more than animals, but this book takes it one step further and tells readers about 100 weird and wacky animals from around the world.
Each spread in this compact book (7 x 7 inches and nearly an inch thick) features a short description — two to four sentences — on the left and a close-up full-color photograph on the right. These animals are very interesting, and some are so strange looking that it will leave readers breathless.
Take the Meishan Pig, for example. If you can imagine a cross between a Shar-Pei and a pig, you will be imagining something like this animal. It looks like it has way too much skin for its face, and its covered in loose wrinkles. Also, the Glaucus Atlanticus, also known as the Blue Dragon, is a most amazing and unusual sea slug that looks like it’s all dressed up.
The included animals are arranged by continent or designated as ocean animals. Some act in unusual ways, while some just look strange. All are fascinating. The writing is fun and accessible for kids, but adults will also enjoy this book. Perfect for a car trip or bedside table.
