Books
If a camel gets angry, he will vomit green gastric juice all over you. A sloth moves so slowly that green algae grows in his fur. Even a blind chameleon takes on the colour of its surroundings. Bologna Ragazzi Award winner Marije Tolman, creator of The Tree House and The Island, illustrates in her distinctive style the curious, funny, bizarre, unbelievable, disgusting and weird facts about all kinds of different animals. The animal facts are straightforward nonfiction, while Marije Tolma n's illustrations are pure fantasy, creating a combination that is sure to engage young readers. After reading and looking at Jumping Penguins, a visit to the zoo will never be the same again.
