The Animal Book of Records
Katharina Vestre, Linnea Vestre
Edutainment for everyone who wants to learn about the most incredible animals on earth. Full of fun facts, and every spread is illustrated and designed to give the reader a new experience.
… my five-year-old is glued to the book from the first record … and has come dragging with it several times, in the touching way children come dragging with books.
Did you know that a slimy, brown worm can grow longer than a blue whale? Or that some fish communicate with fart? Nature is full of fascinating animals who are experts in the strangest things. In The Animal Book of Records you will meet world champions in all kinds of categories; How high is it possible to jump? Which animal sweats the most, and who has the best night vision? And did you know that there is a fish that can predict the weather, and that there’s a frog that smells like peanut butter?
Ever since the Vestre sisters, Katharina and Linnea, were kids they have loved to learn about animals – not only elephants and monkeys, but also the tiny insects in the garden. Their fascination for animals has resulted in this exciting, funny and beautifully illustrated book for young readers and their families.
