Did you know that an octopus has three hearts?

Or that ostriches can’t walk backward?

Or that a group of owls is called a parliament, or that they have three eyelids?

Sea otters hold hands in their sleep, bees never sleep, and penguins laugh when they’re tickled!

This charming compendium contains over 100 pages of fascinating facts about the animal kingdom illustrated with whimsical detail.


So, here is a short review, for a little book.

In this cute, addictive book, MAJA SÄFSTRÖM creates wonderfully quirky animal illustrations with accompanying facts.

I really loved this book. It is quite short (120 pages) with little text, so I flew through it. Not only were the illustrations eye-catching, but the animal facts were just as interesting. I ended up reading the book aloud to my husband!

Check out this book. Adults and kids will find it fascinating.

I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the publisher through Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
