JUVENILE NONFICTION / Animals / General
Go big or go home! Meet the biggest weirdos on Earth in this colosally cool collection from the team that brought you Pink Is For Blobfish.

It’s a big wide world, full of critters that are larger than life! Sure, there are the usual suspects: blue whales, polar bears, elephant seals…but others will take you by surprise. The giant snail, for instance, or the ginormous Atlas moth. Like Pink Is for Blobfish and Cute as an Axolotl, Big as a Giant Snail will cover a wide variety of species, while subtly delving into misconceptions and stereotypes associated with size. Best of all? These tall tales are totally true!
 
Awe-inspiring… This work fits into so many lessons, from endangered species to climate change and habitat preservation, that it’s hard to imagine a collection that would not benefit from having it on its shelves.” —School Library Journal

Series Overview: The World of Weird Animals is a nonfiction picture book series introducing kids to nature’s most remarkable weirdos.

It includes: Pink is for Blobfish, What Makes a Monster?, Cute as an Axolotl, Gross as a Snot Otter, and now Big as a Giant Snail.

Big animals? Big sales! Appeals to the many fans of Animal Planet or National Geographic, while deepening and widening their understanding of the animal kingdom.

STEM overload! Full of useful and entertaining facts and diagrams, this nonfiction science book is perfect for classroom use. Because of the author’s zoology background, it’s full of the latest research and includes animals that were only recently discovered.

Size isn’t everything. Gently encourages readers to look past appearances to understand different creatures’ strengths, reinforcing messages that teachers and parents are already sharing about body positivity.

Zoologist author. Jess is very plugged in to the latest research, and several of the animals in this book were only discovered in the last 5 years. She’s also a social media dynamo, with her own Youtube channel and a major following among educators.

A great gift for reluctant readers or junior scientists.

Jess Keating is a zoologist-turned-author who writes with the sort of wisdom you can only get from multiple crocodile bites and skunk sprays. Jess has been making up stories for as long as she can remember, and at the age of eight, she even started a library in her room (mainly so she could charge her brother late fees). She is also the author of the award winning biography Shark Lady and the graphic novel series Bonbon and Bun Bun. She lives with her husband in Ontario, Canada, where she is hard at work on her next book.
