The Book of Animal Ignorance

Karen Zarker

The Book of Animal Ignorance: Everything You Think You Know Is Wrong by John Mitchinson and John Lloyd - Random House [$19.95]

This humorous collection of trivia about animals -- including the two-legged, (largely) hairless kind -- is perfect for the friend laid up in the hospital with a broken leg from a ski accident; the child too old for the traditional bedtime story but still young enough to love the gross-out stuff; the grandparent who enjoys a chuckle along with an education that sets their assumptions about the animal kingdrom right. It's perfect for me, too, who falls somewhere in the middle of this spectrum, and who enjoyed the short installments and sketches as the last read of the day before lights out. This book will amuse, inform, and add just a bit of healthy wonder about how other critters on this planet go about their business in ways sometimes so bizaare to ours that surely, we think, they must be from another planet. [$19.95]
