This is a book written by a kid for kids. Duncan Levy chose 18 land animals and 14 sea animals to research and share his opinion on. It contains facts that are fun to learn delivered through the type of wit you would expect from a bright 8-year old (now 11).
Animals on land Duncan discusses include: albatross, baboon, bobcat, cheetah, eagle, flamingo, gorilla, hyena, leopard, lion, moose, parrot, penguin, porcupine, red fox, seal tiger, walrus, wolf, and the polar bear. Animals in the sea include: boxfix, dolphins, eel, schools of fish, jellyfish, hammerhead, humback whales, killer whales, rays, salmon, sharks, and stonefish.
Read the intro paragraph from "Animals on Land" to get a feel for Duncan's writing style. "Animals on land are fun to look at and can be fun to pet, particularly domestic animals. I love my grandparent's cats. However, many of the animals in this book are wild animals, which can only be looked at. Petting them will result in losing fingers or an arm or worse. Yikes!"
