Listened to it over... and over... and over!!

I wasn't sure what to expect with this audiobook... and wow was I surprised! Very funny tales of the weird and wonderful creatures of the world! Very informative and hilarious. The comedic interludes were thoroughly enjoyable and so very funny. The Bee episode..... my favourite.

A must for light, funny, and informative listening!

Super funny and informative!

Fun! And informative! I love Sue's humor and I had a great time learning information about animals I'd never heard of and new information about animals I knew a little bit about. Half encyclopedia, half stand-up routine, real fun to listen to.

If you are a fan of "True Facts" you will love these glimpses into the details of various animals. Entertaining and informative with hilarious sound effects and cut-aways. I am eagerly waiting for more!

Needs pictures lol

The explanations were good and informative on each animal. However I could do without the silly little play type things in the middle. This book actually was good; but just not in an audible book. Pictures would help so the person could see exactly what animal is be described.
