I bought this book to read to my nephew and niece and they absolutely loved it. A huge amount of thought has obviously gone into each of these curious animals and the descriptions are cute and funny. My favourite is Velcrows, who fly around stuck together - of course!

Each picture prompted lots of questions from the kids and although the animals are obviously make-believe, it did get us talking about the animals they were based on.

I highly recommend this book.

Not the best book for teaching young children to read. The children found the names hard to work out and remember.

This book is neither clever nor fun. It has none of the charm of a dr Seuss and our kids found it dull and pointless. I question how a book like this with less than 50 reviews (and free) could ever call itself a best seller? Fallen foul of the Trade descriptions act?

it was the best of all of the most popular stories and the best bit of the book is the best ways of doing weird animal name's and the most important thing is that you can also make your own silly name's to be the best at making people laugh and smile at a time when you are at school outside because if you are in school your teacher will tell you of your life will be a great live if you aren't going to be told of doing this for the rest of your life and the most common cause of death is doing bad things! this book doesn't have real life animals so don't worry about seeing weird stuff

I see that some reviewers don't like this book - I can only think they have no sense of humour, imagination, or sense of the ridiculous. But it's great fun - who wouldn't want to ride a hammerhead horse?!

Yes it's brief - the clue is in the 'A-Z' nature of the book - but why not make even more use of it by using it as a starting point for your own stories? Just imagine the adventures a Zaptoad might have!

When I got it it was free - I have paid very much more for far worse. Well done to Sprogling: I love your silliness.

I read this to my three-year-old, and he really didn’t appreciate it. The book is basically a list of made-up animals, most of which are quite ridiculous. I think the worst of these was possibly the ‘velcrow’ – a bunch of crows that fly around stuck to each other.
Far from being silly-amusing, this was silly-frustrating, and like I said, even my three-year-old didn’t appreciate it.
4 out of 10.

Another book I bought to read with my granddaughters. I have not read it to them yet, though.
I think it's a funny book, but wonder at the age range it's aimed at. I would guess probably from 4 to 5 onwards, as it has some really strange words in, and perhaps a knowledge of the alphabet is better. The illustrations are beautiful, the imagination stretched (which i like).
Looking forward to trying it out with the 4 yr old!

This book hasn't got any real animals in it and made up facts which isn't good for younger children because they might think there real animals and facts so could get questions wrong at school and never learn. But it was very intresting and fun and i think younger children (4 or 5 maby,) will like it a lot. i would recomend this book for 4-7 year olds. i did enjoy this book.

I bought this book to read to my sun. I bought this book for my 4 year old son because I think that getting to know and spend daily time with the alphabet cannot be started too early. My favourite is Aarkvaards never know witch way to go!

So I think this book apart from being educational, is also prone to grow the fantasy.

I highly recommend this book.

This was very enlightening. Thanks to this book, I now know about all the unique species on earth. I am now looking out for all the crazy animals, and I believe I have already encountered a yellow-finned terrier!!!!!!! Recommend to any wildlife enthusiasts and observers!!!!!! My knowledge has been expanded!!!!
