Full of weird and wacky facts and retro-inspired illustrations, Incredible Creatures is the fun introduction to everything from the most microscopic creepy crawlies to the biggest dinosaurs ever. Prepare to laugh, marvel, and learn.

The animal world is full of remarkable things, including elephants that purr like cats, sharks that like to listen to heavy metal, and Egyptian plover birds that clean the teeth of crocodiles in exchange for food. With loads of information on animals' colors, perception, speed, and strength, Incredible Creatures explores monkey business, bird bathrooms, snappy sounds, claws and effect, and even the cuddly pets we love best.
