This is a great book and would make the perfect gift for animal lovers and trivia buffs of any age. It's a children's book but will not bore adults. I've already whipped a few facts I learned from it out in casual conversation!

This unbiased review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher.

A very fun, informative and interesting guide to a variety of animals around the world. Kids should love this one.

A very colorful book, but I read the book on a kindle and had great difficulty reading white print on
