Lesser Spotted Animals by Martin Brown

lesser-spotted-animalsBison? They’re banned! Tigers? Taboo! Say good-bye to the gnu, cheerio to the cheetah, and peace to the panda.

The world of Lesser Spotted Animals STARTS HERE!

Find out all about the amazing animals you need to know but never get to see, from the numbat to the zorilla, and everything in between.

A non-fiction picture book with attitude.

How did I get the book? Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review

Genre: Non-Fiction

Review: Stunning, interesting and fun. That’s the best way I can think to sum up Lesser Spotted Animals.

As the introduction points out, we all know about the panda’s but what about the Black-footed Ferret, Numbat or Banded Linsang? Those are just two of the animals in this book that I had never heard of and now know a little bit about.



Personally I don’t think Lesser Spotted Animals as a ‘best age’ to read. It was educational and entertaining (apparently I’m a grown-up) and I can see this working for everyone. You get to learn basic facts about the animals and they all have a status. It’s a reminder of how important conservation is and how much we humans mess things up.

The art is brilliant, each animal has a personality and because the text is humorous instead of just listing facts the book is much more engaging.
