Have fun learning about some odd but true animal facts with Dr. Sugar Glider and her patients!

Zoë Zebra is troubled. Why do flies crash into her? A visit from Dr. Glider can solve the mystery. Our gliding doctor also helps a sloth stay awake, a sneezing iguana, a leaderless clownfish, a lovesick egret, and many more creatures with some peculiar problems.

This hilarious and fun picture book by author and zoologist Jess Keating (Pink Is for Blobfish) and New York Times bestselling illustrator Pete Oswald (The Couch Potato) is packed with entertaining animal stories and unbelievable true facts on every page that are sure to fascinate curious young readers. Scientific vocabulary appears throughout each medical adventure, and there's a glossary and a list of species at the end.

And for more laughter and nonfiction fun, read about the weird but true problems among Dr. Glider's first group of patients in Eat Your Rocks, Croc!

As a zoologist and author, Jess Keating has been sprayed by skunks, bitten by crocodiles, and victim of the dreaded paper cut. Her books blend science, humor, and creativity, and include the acclaimed My Life Is a Zoo middle-grade trilogy and award-winning picture books, like Shark Lady and Pink Is for Blobfish. Jess lives in Ontario, Canada, where she loves hiking, nerdy documentaries, and writing books for curious and adventurous kids.

Praise for The Bad Seed, illustrated by Pete Oswald:
