The Friday 56 (58) The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts by Maja Säfström

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice where every Friday you pick a book and turn to page 56 or 56%, and select a sentence or a few, as long as it's not a spoiler. For the full rules, visit the the page HERE

Synopsis from Goodreads...

An artfully playful collection of unexpected and remarkable facts about animals, illustrated by Swedish artist Maja Säfström.

Did you know that an octopus has three hearts? Or that ostriches can't walk backward? These and many more fascinating and surprising facts about the animal kingdom (Bees never sleep! Starfish don't have brains!) are illustrated with whimsical detail in this charming collection...

The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts"A Tarantula can survive for more than 2 years without food! They have retractable claws on their "feet"--just like cats!"--The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts by Maja Säfström




Comments: I never wanted to know that much about spiders because I don't like them. Still, it's an interesting fact...I guess. What are you reading this week? Or, are there any books coming out soon that you're really looking forward to reading?
