What Breaths Through its Butt – Emily Grossman


Oh my gosh. So. The title got me right away – so fun and so zany!

And the content is what sold the book for me.

I love, love, love animal books and this one was no exception. I think what drew me to it was the formatting.

Everyone and their mother has seen the kind of animal books that go fact-fact-fact or the ones that go question-answer-question-answer…but Grossman’s book knocks those out of the water.

This book is set up with various multiple choice questions about animal life – from the obscure to the crazy – and then the book answers the questions – but not in the way that you think.

Grossman goes through each multiple choice answer and provides all sorts of information about it and often going into tangents about particularly cool facts and features about the various species.

I love that the book felt like a stream-of-consciousness journey into the wild, weird and wacky animals of our plant.

I also liked the art of this one too – it was a lot of fun to watch all of the illustrations bring this book to life.

All in all, this was a lovely animal book and I’m really excited to see what Grossman writes next!!

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review
