The Wackiest, Wildest, Weirdest Animals in the World by Jack Hanna – book review


Jack Hanna’s Wackiest, Wildest, Weirdest Animals in the World is a cute, fun, wacky book full of amazing creatures and lots of interesting facts about them.

My four year old son is an animal fanatic so I was excited to get my hands on this book and he loves it! For each animal, Hanna gives some basic information about what they eat, where they live and how big they get plus some fascinating descriptions of what makes them unique.

Little sidelines on some of the pages where ‘Jungle Jack’ describes a time where he encountered one of these weird animals in the wild add to the interest and reality of what the book is teaching.

I personally like the fact that there is no hint of a suggestion of any of the animals ‘evolving’ and there is even the odd mention of an animal being ‘designed’.

Well worth buying for any children (or adults) who are interested in some of the odder creatures found on earth.

The enclosed DVD is funny, but went a little over my children’s heads as they are a little young to understand the hilarity in some of the outtakes.
