Summary: If your list of pink animals begins and ends with “flamingo”, you need to take a look at this book. And if you think pink is a dainty, girly-girl color, check out the photos of the pinktoe tarantula and the dragon millipede. Not to mention the blobfish, recently voted the ugliest animal in the world by the Ugly Animal Preservation Society. Each two-page spread includes a full-page photo and the name, species name, size, diet, habitat, predators and threats, and some fun facts. End matter includes a glossary, list of further resources, and a color-coded map that shows where each animal lives.
Pros: A unique approach to animal facts, written in an easy-to-read format that kids will enjoy. This is the first in a series called “The World of Weird Animals”.
Cons: I found the map a little difficult to use.
