Reviews

Earley presents 59 strange birds, each getting a beautiful full-color photo and a caption explaining the purpose of their bizarre features.--William Hageman Chicago Tribune (11/07/2014) The Earth truly is a wondrous place made special by the species that live here. Books like Weird Birds and Weird Frogs provide us with a glimpse of some of the fascinating animals we are fortunate to share the planet with. Learning more about these animals can provide us with the incentive to live lightly on Earth and protect all life.--Glenn Perrett Simcoe.com (11/11/2014) From the Andean Cock-of-the-Rock to the Secretary bird to Atlantic Puffins and Asian Paradise Flycatchers, Earley's birds and descriptions are highly amazing.--Lee Littlewood Lodi News-Sentinel (11/04/2014) Incredible photography of the world's most unique birds accompanied by equally interesting details makes this book a positive delight... 5 out of 5.--Katrina Yurenka Youth Services Book Review (11/19/2014)
