By Clare Hibbert
An exciting introduction to the weird world of animals in their natural surroundings.
Birds come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and colours and live in varying habitats around the world...but why? Some birds use colours to camouflage themselves from predators or prey, others use their bright plumage for attracting mates, some have amazing-sounding calls, some can swim and some can even run faster than a car! Discover the world's strangest birds and learn all about why they are so weird!
Really Weird Animals, six books that take a close up look at some of the oddest animals on Earth. For children aged 7+.
