    A brilliant book

    I really enjoyed this book. I loved all the different animals with the funny names. I really liked the non-fiction bit at the back which told you facts about the animals.

    A funny take on unique animals

    I thought the book was clever and funny, I enjoyed learning about all these different animals and actually thought the Fried egg jelly fish was the funniest name for an animal. It was an excellent insight into our amazing world of animals!

    We love this story in our house. It is funny, charming and very interesting. We always thoroughly enjoy the fact pages at the back. It is fascinating to see how these real creatures have been turned into characters in a story.
