The World’s Most Pointless Animals
The World’s Most Pointless Animals is a witty, quirky, colourfully illustrated book featuring fascinating facts about some very silly animals … who we find are perhaps not so pointless after all.
From familiar animals like giraffes (who don’t have any vocal cords) through to those that surely should not even exist, such as the pink fairy armadillo (absurdly huge front claws, super tough protective shell in baby pink, particularly susceptible to stress), our planet is full of some pretty weird and wonderful animals. For example:
Koalas spend up to 18 hours a day asleep!
Pandas are born bright pink, deaf and blind.
Dumbo octopuses flap their big fin-like ears to move around.
A Narwhal’s tusk grows through its upper lip – ouch!
With hilarious text throughout and bright, contemporary illustrations, this guide to absurdly awesome animals contains funny labelled diagrams and some excellent made-up Latin names (n.b. the jellyfish’s scientific name is not actually wibblious wobblious ouchii).
Carrying an important message of celebrating diversity and differences, The World’s Most Pointless Animals inspires a drive to conserve our amazing planet and the creatures we’re lucky enough to share it with.
Quirky Creatures is a series dedicated to seeking out the weird and wonderful denizens of the natural world and explaining why they are so strange, from the ridiculous to the truly terrifying. Also available in this series is The World’s Most Ridiculous Animals and The World’s Most Atrocious Animals.
A hilarious guide to the planet's most absurdly awesome animals, full of quirky facts and touching on the importance of diversity and conservation. -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
