Book Description

21 May 2009
Meet the water bears that can live in suspension for hundreds of years, the parasite carried by your cat that makes men grumpy and women promiscuous, and the woodlouse that drinks through its bottom. Marvel at elephants that walk on tiptoe, the pigs that shine in the dark, and the woodpeckers that have ears on the end of their tongues. From the team that brought ignorance to millions, a Christmas bestseller - full of illuminating illustrations, maps and diagrams - shrunk down to a pocket-friendly, easily-searchable, portability-considerate size.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bite sized chunks of animal 5 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
The format reminded me a bit of 253, with a name, picture, fun line drawing, a tag line and a double page spread per animal. The style was informal and comfortable to read with lots of entertaining surprises. Great for short breaks, travelling or when you're too tired to concentrate for long periods of time. However, a bit like chocolate, too much in one sitting is not recommended.
