The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts: A Review

Did you know...

Sea otters hold hands when they sleep in the water so they don't float away from each other. How sweet!
An octopus has three hearts while a starfish has no brains.
Ants don't have lungs and bees never sleep.
Owls can't move their eyes but turn their heads some 230 degrees. 
Beaver teeth never stop growing while seahorses have no teeth or stomach.
Sloths climb down to the ground only once a week to poop.
Hummingbirds can fly backwards.
Then there's the ostrich, moose, panda and more.
Are these trivia-style animal facts amazing or what?
Now, pair them with adorable pen and ink illustrations of the animals, some even with thought bubbles, and you have the perfect combination of science and art in a book that kids will love reading over and over. If you are a kid at heart, you'll love it too!
Want more of these humorous facts? 
Be sure to check out Swedish artist Maja Säfström's book, "The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts". 
A great addition to your home library, coffee table and gift directory!

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
