The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts by Maja Säfström

This is such a great, fun, charming little book that isn’t so little! At over 100 pages full of whimsical illustrations, the compendium is delightful and humorous. Säfström’s drawings are great and I just keep thinking I’d like this tattooed, and this, and this. I especially loved the little bats and octopus. The facts are super interesting as well. Who knew goats peed on their own heads! I certainly didn’t, and I love goats!
