Kids love science, kids love animals, and kids love everything-everything-weird. Introducing The Screaming Hairy Armadillo and 76 Other Animals with Wild, Wacky Names, a science-based illustrated celebration of creature's notable for their bizarre, baffling, and just-plain-funny names. Meet the Waxy Monkey Tree Frog, who lives high in the forests of South America-the "waxy" refers to its skin secretions and the "monkey" comes from its long, simian fingers, perfect for climbing. The White-Bellied Go-Away Bird-guess what its cry sounds like? Plus, the Fried Egg Jellyfish, the Sparklemuffin Peacock Spider, the Bone-Eating Snot Flower Worm, and many more. While the names of these species are undeniably curious, the heart of the book is their just-as-curious habits, appearance, abilities-and the stories of how they acquired their unusual monikers. There are over 70 creatures in all, brought to life with full-color illustrations and photographs and detailed, engagingly written text
