Synopsis

Remarkable Animals 1000 Amazing Amalgamations 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. 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.

Reviews

With a magical world to get lost in, and exotic names to relish, this fabulously inventive book will grab children of all ages. Independent This is clever stuff, beautiful and great fun. Guardian 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 Clever and eye-catching - 1000 fantastic combinations with outlandish descriptions. Sunday Times 5 stars - Brilliant fun, choose which flaops to lift and create brand new seriously weird animals! One of our favourites this year!! www.bettybookmark.co.uk
