Ten Speed Press has done it again! Another wonderfully amazing book, and I gladly give it a 5 star rating, which is rare for me. This book has a delightful old style look to it at first glance of the cover, which is a bit different. The illustrations all follow the same style, and are in black and white. The animal facts are delivered in short and sweet one-liners. Very attention grabbing, and very funny! In today’s world of short Tweets, I think this book will appeal not only to children, but to adults as well. I enjoyed, and even laughed out loud, at some of the facts inside, but don’t want to list any spoilers. You’ll have to read it for yourself!
