Absolutely loved it!

This book is absolutely delightful and is filled with fascinating animal facts.

I learned so many new things about animals, and I am so sated with discovering new realities of the natural wonders surrounding us.

Anyone with the slightest interest in animals will not be able to resist reading/listening to this book to its conclusion and will be an excellent addition to any home.

I enjoyed listening to this book.

For me, my confidence level for trivia nights has been dialed up!

Well done!
