The Lovereading4Kids comment
This bright, attractive looking book takes a quirky approach to natural history. Colourful artwork and higgledy-piggledy type create outlandish scenarios to explore animal characteristics. Children will love the absurdity of questions such as ‘Could a shark do gymnastics?’ Or ‘What if a shark went to the dentist?’, but the answers are surprisingly informative, and memorable too. It turns out that sharks’ strong, bendy bodies are perfect for gymnastics – they can leap more than 2.5 metres, higher than any human. There’s a more conventional fact file at the end too, complete with smiling cartoon shark, pointer in hand! See the partner volume too Could a Whale Swim to the Moon? ~ Andrea Reece
