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. 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.

Reviews

Clever and eye-catching - 1000 fantastic combinations with outlandish descriptions. Sunday Times This is clever stuff, beautiful and great fun. Guardian With a magical world to get lost in, and exotic names to relish, this fabulously inventive book will grab children of all ages. Independent Now available in mini version. A gorgeously illustrated, spiral-bound mix-and-match collection of 10 remarkable animals which take on endless new names as their heads, bodies and tales are swirched around. There are many versions of this type of book, but this is head and shoulders above the rest thanks to the quality of text and images. Independent Wit fills every page - or flap - of his seriously funny novelty book, Remarkable Animals, featuring peculiar creatures and hilarious names as they swap body parts... Words can't describe the brilliance and magic of his intricate designs and illustrations. They need to be seen over and over to be fully appreciated. Stroud Life
