by BUNTING, Philip

ISBN: 9781761212604
Australian: Yes
Published: 2023 by Little Hare Books
Level: Primary Years (3-5)


Another high-quality book from prolific author/illustrator Philip Bunting. The front cover sets the tone with the variety of animals depicted on it and the quirky ‘side comments’ attached. The inside cover is then covered with many different animals, all ‘atrocious’ in some way. To assist in understanding the animals, there is a detailed contents page and detailed index page both of which are illustrated with cute depictions of atrocious animals. A beautifully clear font is used throughout and gives the information about each animal on the page. Large illustrations are featured on each page, with fun annotations in a different font which highlight some of the more extreme and unusual facts about the animals. The Latin name for each animal is also included under the common name of each animal. The Latin name is then struck out and replaced with a comical ‘pretend’ Latin name. All these features contribute to the interactivity of the book and information, while making it a humorous and delightful experience to read. The sharing of scientific information has been cleverly conveyed in this book in an innovative and appealing way.
