The World's Most Pointless Animals

The World's Most Pointless Animals

by Philip Bunting

We share our planet with some truly weird and wonderful creatures, from blobfish to pink fairy armadillos, who all (let's be honest) seem pretty pointless. But what do these creatures actually do?!

A witty, quirky, colourfully-illustrated book featuring some very silly animals. With a humorous, sardonic tone throughout, it contains funny labelled diagrams and some excellent made-up Latin names (n.b. the jellyfish's scientific name is not actually wibblious wobblious ouchii...) but, importantly, it conveys genuinely fascinating facts about these animals, who are perhaps not so pointless after all.
