“An artfully playful collection of unexpected and remarkable facts about animals, illustrated by Swedish artist Maja Säfström.

Did you know that an octopus has three hearts? Or that ostriches can’t walk backward? These and many more fascinating and surprising facts about the animal kingdom (Bees never sleep! Starfish don’t have brains!) are illustrated with whimsical detail in this charming collection. -Goodreads


I received this book through Blogging For Books in exchange for an honest review. That being said, I love this book. It is full of adorable illustrations and fun, interesting facts about animals. The black and white illustrations are so adorable that I am tempted to color them! I’ve learned so many interesting fun facts such as there are parliaments of owls, conspiracies of ravens,  and mobs of kangaroos! While the target audience is most  likely children, I think this book is the perfect coffee table book! It has such an adorable cover that looks like its an older book.

 What is your favorite animal fact?
