While the primary target audience for the book may be children, I feel like this is a book that even adults are going to be wonderstruck by. I discovered animals that I had absolutely no idea about – a fish with a transparent head, a Wolverine-like frog, a crab with boxing gloves … creatures that seem like they exist only in legends. And the illustrations are mesmerizing – each spread is a lavish burst of light and colour. The writing is snappy but also substantial so it’s not like you’re just gathering information or reading facts; you’re actually getting a proper peek into each animal’s world. All in all, this book is a great introduction to the marvels we share our earth with.
