Scientifically rigorous and downright hilarious, The Truth About Animals is a delightfully unique book! Zoologist, award-winning filmmaker, and rollicking storyteller Lucy Cooke—who founded the Sloth Appreciation Society to combat the unfairly maligned reputation of the admittedly quirky creature—celebrates all animals, especially the oft-besmirched ones. With authority and verve, Cooke shares the fascinating evolution of humankind's biological understanding of eels, frogs, hyenas, bats, vultures, hippos, chimpanzees, and more. From tales of the extraordinary value of beaver testicles to theories of storks migrating to the moon, the fantastic falsehoods that flourished throughout history are outshone only by the incredible true facts about our fellow life-forms. This modern-day bestiary is sure to amuse and enlighten animal lovers and scientific sorts. (CH)
