Reviews

"Not cute curios, but the seriously weird, which... make the animals that much more appealing." - Kirkus Reviews "A really spectacularly inventive, weird, and beautiful book for kids of all ages. Get one for the kid nearest at hand, which might be yourself." - Rick Moody, author of Garden State and The Ice Storm "Author Michael Hearst keeps the tone exciting and entertaining, often times breaking into a goofy poem, or throwing in a quirky true or false quiz." - Apartment Therapy "Hugely entertaining and just as informative" - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "Hearst's enthusiasm for his subject... comes through on every page. A terrific conversation starter." - Scientific American "This invitingly designed volume featuring 50 eclectic creatures will inspire young readers with enthusiasm for the natural world." - Shelf Awareness for Readers, Starred Review "Hearst's appreciation for the quirkiness of nature shines through, and is reinforced in a concluding note admonishing readers to be kind to the earth" - The Horn Book Magazine " A cool compendium of fascinating animals" - Boston Globe/ Best Children's Books of the Year "We are enthralled by the information and sheer artistry in bookmaking of this compendium of odd living things from around the globe" - Lisa Von Drasek, Early Word, Best Books to Give To Kids You Don't Know Very Well "This handsome volume is a fun-for-all informative compendium." - School Library Journal "May well inspire a new generation of budding scientists" - Shelf Awareness for Readers/Best Books of The Year "A quirky toast to the fascinating, impressively well-adapted freaks among us." - Discover Magazine
