Animal Planet Strange, Unusual, Gross & Cool Animals

We rated this book:


The world is full of fascinating and strange creatures, and this book has captured a great many of them for youngsters to look at and read about. These animals are divided into four categories: strange, unusual, gross, and cool. With examples such as the pink, funny-faced blobfish, the frilled, rusty tussock moth, the cannibalistic rosy wolfsnail, the highly decorated peacock spiders, the Mariana Trench jellyfish that look like alien spaceships, the long-necked Chinese softshell turtle, the huge Goliath bird-eating spider. Well, the list goes on and on. There isn’t one page in this book that isn’t rife with fun, fascinating information and photographs and sidebars with features and a map showing where they live.

Author Charles Ghigna has gathered an extraordinary variety of animals, written the most interesting and pertinent facts, and presented the text with stunning photographs of all these creatures. The photographs are the real strength of this book–very close up, clear, and colorful. Some are so strange it is hard to believe they are real and haven’t been touched up (think blue-footed booby or red-lipped batfish). Kids and adults alike will find this a terrifically fun book to have around. Winner!
