The Lovereading4Kids comment
A Mini Edition of Tony Meeuwissen's amazing mix-match book of 1000 extraordinary creatures with words and pictures.
Beautiful illustrations make this witty book of ‘heads, bodies and legs’ a delight. What starts as a Platypus can be swiftly altered into a ‘Tratypus’ or a ‘Tratysh’ while a regular Opossum with its sweet young on its back can become and unlikely-looking Gotossum with a remarkably green face! The extensive number of choices that can be created makes this a very satisfying book. ~ Julia Eccleshare
As you can see from the photo our young reviewer, Ben, loved it.
Remarkable Animals by Tony Meeuwissen
What is a Treevipus? A fantastic creature with the head of a trunkfish, the body of a weevil and the tail of a platypus, of course! Here, a host of creatures presented in humorous pictures and informative captions take on new names, and a hilarious new identity when their heads, bodies and legs are swapped around as the pages are flipped.
In this Mini Edition, Tony Meeuwissen's witty interchangeable text and beautifully detailed artwork combine to make an exceptional novelty book. To see some artwork inspired by this book click here.

'With a magical world to get lost in, and exotic names to relish, this fabulously inventive book will grab children of all ages.' Independent
'By far the best of recent picture books. The animals look as if they were the wild imaginings of a 16th century explorer whose brain was addled by too many years in the tropics.' Mensa Quest
'Great for tweaking even the most timid imagination.' School Library Journal
'Brilliant fun, choose which flaops to lift and create brand new seriously weird animals! One of our favourites this year!!' www.bettybookmark.co.uk
