A stunning visual exploration of what it takes to be counted among the weirdest, most incredible animals on Earth.

From the bone-crunching bearded vulture to the venomous platypus, many of the creatures featured here are undeniably weird. But readers of this field guide-like picture book will learn that what makes an axolotl or flying snake so strange, to humans at least, is often exactly what helps it to survive in its habitat. Award-winning illustrator Ben Rothery's fact-filled book of the planet's weirdest, most wonderful creatures explores the scene.
Ben Rothery is a detail-obsessed illustrator from Norwich, England, via Cape Town. He combines multiple processes to create intricate and delicate illustrations and repeating patterns, full of fine detail and vibrant color. Much of Ben’s work is inspired or informed by his love of nature—he grew up wanting variously to be a shark, a dinosaur or David Attenborough crossed with Indiana Jones, but settled on illustration as a way to bring those fantasies to life on paper. Ben works from a small studio in London, which he shares with an unnecessarily large collection of very sharp pencils.
