    Birds are curious creatures. From their unusual appearance to their unique behaviour, they really are one of the most fascinating species in the animal kingdom.

    In this book you'll find colourful feathers alongside peculiar beaks, beady eyes and funny-coloured feet. You'll read of dangerous birds, clever birds, fast birds, awkward birds, silly birds, massive birds and tiny birds. You'll laugh at their odd hairdos, marvel at their remarkable hunting skills and admire their wild mating dances. Most of all, you'll learn that birds are awesome and deserve our love, care and respect.

    Meet some of our magnificent avian friends in this bright and colourful book!

    Book of Curious Birds is an informative book about the many weird, wacky, and wonderful birds that inhabit the Earth, from the deadly cassowaries of Australia to the funny-looking blue-footed boobies of the Galapagos Islands.

    Each bird’s entry includes a full-page illustration of the species in question, along with key information about the species and its habitat, conservation status, visual features, and mating and eating habits.

    Each bird featured in the book is particularly notable, or ‘curious’, in some way—maybe it has an abnormally long tail or beak, or a particularly interesting mating ritual, or maybe it’s the largest (or smallest!) bird of its kind! The book also includes a handy glossary for the more complex terminology used throughout the entries, and a contents page to help readers navigate.

    Featuring beautiful full-page illustrations, this colourful, educational book is a great resource for younger and older readers alike.

    Bird enthusiasts and casual readers will all be enthralled by this book’s selection of truly fascinating species.
