Did you know that a Wandering Albatross can fly up to 6 million kilometres in its life time? Or that in Stirling, USA, cats have to wear a tail light when they are out at night? I bet you didn’t know that in 2009, it rained frogs in Japan! If you want to learn more about these amazing facts, plus hundreds of other interesting titbits, then The Awesome Book of Animals is for you.

It is easy to see why this author has won the ‘Best Book with Facts’ Blue Peter Award in the past. Every well-researched page contains fascinating, funny and sometimes unbelievable information about animals from all around the world. Each section is broken into categories, making the facts easy to remember and, as the animal traits are often compared with human abilities, it makes the information accessible and relatable. Sure to be a hit with fact lovers and animal lovers alike.

If you have ever wondered which animal moves slowest, is the most deadly, or even poos the most – then this is the book for you!
