The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts
I love facts. My favourite show is QI. I watch fact videos on youtube obsessively. So when I saw the Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animals Facts by Maja Safstrom, I had to get it and review it.
First Impression – The cover is amazing. It’s so pretty! The artwork inside is just as great. I was super excited just to hold it in my hands.
While Reading – I really enjoy the facts and the images that go with them. I just wish there were more facts! But the book does do a good job at adding some facts I didn’t even know, which was really nice. It turns out a lot of animals can’t walk backwards. Which makes me feel a bit better because I can’t do it well. The art is really pretty. I really want to share the artwork with people, but at the very least, I can share the book with them and suggest it to them.
I think this book is a great bathroom/side table book and a book for kids (probably earlier being five? I don’t know, I don’t have kids, but I feel like five year old’s would laugh at some of these facts and enjoy them). I think that anyone of any age can enjoy this book and the art in it. It’s an adorable and quick read if you enjoy random and silly facts about animals. I do recommend it for people who enjoy such things and those who don’t, seeing as it’s so short.
