“The Wackiest, Wildest, and Weirdest Animals in the World” by Jack Hanna

“Jungle Jack's The Wackiest, Wildest, and Weirdest Animals in the World” by Jack Hanna is an amazing animal book for young and old readers alike. Thirty amazing animals are listed in the book. They include some exotic ones and some well known ones. This make it easy for readers to identify animals they know with some they never heard of, reaching a nice balance as to not make the reader too bored or too intimidated by their lack of animal knowledge. Everything is broken down in easy to understand terms, and there is even a glossary in the back.

Each animal has a page of its own. The animal’s diet, location, and size are grouped together. There is also a paragraph or so on each page to say what makes each animal “weird.” Fun facts are included in their own border on the page. There are even some personal anecdotes from Hanna about the animals he has encountered. To round it all off, large pictures of the animals are in the center of each page with smaller photos near the sides. Best of all, Hanna keeps God in the picture by reminding readers who created the animals in the book.
