About the Author

Jess Keating is a zoologist-turned-author who writes with the sort of wisdom you can only get from multiple crocodile bites and skunk sprays. Jess has been making up stories for as long as she can remember, and at the age of eight, she even started a library in her room (mainly so she could charge her brother late fees). In addition to nonfiction, she writes middle-grade novels, including the Kirkus-starred How to Outrun a Crocodile When Your Shoes Are Untied. Jess lives with her husband in Ontario, Canada, where she is hard at work on her next book in the World of Weird Animals series. Hint- There will be bloodsuckers!

Reviews

The 2016 Ambassador to Young People's Science and Nature books is unquestionably the blobfish. --Shelftalker

The comical tone makes this particularly inviting, and DeGrand's cartoonish illustrations only add to the fun. A playful introduction to the kookier corners of the animal kingdom. --Booklist Readers will never look at pink the same way.... Keating maintains a casual tone while delivering intriguing details about each animal. --Publishers Weekly Bratz, Monster High, and their ilk have recently demonstrated that how much attitude pink can pack, but Nature has been onto this fact for quite a while. Keating rattles off seventeen creatures from land, sea, and air whose coloration punches a hole in pink's girly-girl image. --The Bulletin Pink is for bubble gum and ballet slippers, sure, but it's also for blobfish, pinktoe tarantulas, pygmy seahorses, Amazon river dolphins [etc.] . . . A map and glossary are the pink icing on the pink cake. It's clearly time to rethink pink, people. --Shelf Awareness
