Book Review: Sad Animal Facts by Brooke Barker


Nature inflicts suffering upon the animal kingdom in weird ways. Such as adult fireflies don’t eat and Chipmunks cannot recognize their own reflection. In her book, Sad Animal Facts, Brooke Barker has compiled a collection of unfortunate facts about animals along with hand-drawn illustrations of each. The last few pages are an index which go a little further in depth into each factoid. For instance, while I already knew that butterflies taste with their feet, I didn’t realize it was because they are testing for suitable leaves for their caterpillars to eat once hatched. The illustrations are cute, giving us an insight to how these animals might feel about their oddities. The book is a quick read and would make a quirky gift this holiday season, or for any reason.
