The first thing I have to mention is that the author of this book is 17 years old! Good for him! He started off answers Quora questions about animals with the many facts he has absorbed himself. Many people suggested he make a book so here we are!

If you love to read about animals you will love this book. The book is laid out almost like a magazine with full colour photographs paired with columns of text about cool features of those animals.

Originally I was thinking I’d read the book to my kids but there were a few things that weren’t quite kid friendly like the death by sex and panda p*rn parts. However you could totally skip those parts or adjust for your child’s age.

The book isn’t just about animals but covers ecosystem spotlights, flora and zoology’s greatest mystery (facetotecans.)

It’s a very interesting book and you’ll learn lots of things you didn’t know. It’s not basic facts but little known facts.
