This cleverly conceived board book appeals to a young child’s sense of fun while providing facts about different animals. A series of impossible but delightful-to-imagine cautionary statements are followed by informative explanations:

Don’t take a bath with a pig. It loves wallowing in the mud.

Don’t start a food fight with an octopus. It has six more arms than you do.

The simplicity and humour in the text and watercolour illustrations will make this book a story time favourite.
