"Lesser Spotted Animals 2" by Martin Brown (David Fickling Books)

When it comes to animal books we're rapidly getting to the point where C needs something...."more" from non-fiction titles that talk about various animal species, their habits and habitats, lives and er...yes, even loves.

So we're overjoyed to see "Lesser Spotted Animals 2" by Martin Brown. The sequel to smasher "Lesser Spotted Animals" but more than that, another chance to find out tons about animals that aren't the headline-grabbing superstars of other animal books, but nonetheless are cute, cuddly and in some cases downright pongy!

Discover more brilliant beasts you never knew you needed to know about from the Altai Argali to the yellow-throated marten and everything in between. 

Martin deftly notches up yet another winner, in the same irreverant and hilarious style as his illustrations for Terry Deary's million-selling "Horrible Histories" books. You'd have to be nuts to miss this one!

Sum this book up in a sentence: A fantastic, funny and irreverent look at a huge collection of animals you may never have heard of before, in a fact-filled giggle-a-thon of a natural history book. 

"Lesser Spotted Animals 2" by Martin Brown is out now, published by David Fickling Books (kindly supplied for review).
