Celebrating Irish Children’s Books | Online School and Family Book Festival. This year we are part of the Dublin Book Festival.

Animal Crackers: Fantastic Facts About Your Favourite Animals

Which are the biggest and smallest animals? Which are the most dangerous? Why do dogs love people so much? What animals can live in the heat of the desert, or deep below the oceans? Sarah Webb is animal crazy and has put the answers to all these questions and more in Animal Crackers, a book bursting with information about animals of all types!

Crammed full of pictures, cartoons and more from Alan Nolan this is the perfect book for children who want to know more about our furry, feathered (and scaly!) friends.

With a special section on Irish wildlife, and the ‘Irish Animal Detective’ activities, children will want to explore their gardens, parks and beaches to seek out all kinds of native animals. Animal Crackers also provides fun facts and engaging activities that kids will love – from how to draw your favourite animals to suggestions on how you can help save the planet!

Fantastic and fascinating facts about animal life abound in this collaboration from animal lovers Sarah Webb and Alan Nolan. Covering a frankly breathtaking amount of information about animals from just about everywhere in the world, the duo take readers on a whirlwind tour of the history, geography and biology of animals of all kinds. Alongside this wealth of knowledge are drawing tips, fun games and jokes that are sure to keep readers entertained, as well as joyful comic illustrations and pun-filled asides. Great stuff altogether!”
