Did you know that hippos can’t swim? This hilarious book is full of fun facts about all sorts of animals, from sleepy ants to jellyfish that glow!
Did you know that a zebra’s stripes are as unique as a human’s fingerprints?
How about that ants take about 250 naps per day?
Or that some jellyfish can glow—and that’s called bioluminescence?
Colorful, humorous illustrations accompany tons of cool facts about animals of all shapes, sizes, speeds, and species in this lively book that makes nonfiction fun!
Animal-based humor and goofy cartoons with the feel of 1950s animation fill the pages of this entertaining and lightly informational book. Bug-eyed turquoise jellyfish with bean-shaped heads and squiggly arms (some wear glasses, hair bows, and hats) "float with the currents of the ocean," while on the opposite page, a nonthreatening-looking purple shark is paralyzed with fear over a long-lashed jellyfish's bioluminescence. Elsewhere, readers learn that raccoons are "attracted to shiny objects" and ants "take about 250 naps throughout the day." While the overall vibe is more Hanna-Barbera than National Geographic, there's a good amount of animal factoids amid the silliness. Ages 4 8.
