The "Sad Animal Facts" hand drawings and saying will have you smiling. With each one I had to laugh a little and get excited to read the next one. The artist and illustrator currently lives in my city of Portland, OR. Living here I haven't come across her art, even though I live in the Pearl District where we have an artist market on First Thursday. I hope to see her work around the area soon. She had me laughing, giggling and showing these cute drawings to others. Along with several pages from the book I got some postcards. I'm going to post a couple on the community wall in my loft building. I would love to have other people getting some giggles on the way to the recycle room.
If you are looking for a cute gift book, I heartily recommend this one.
A delightful and quirky compendium of the Animal Kingdom’s more unfortunate truths, with over 150 hand-drawn illustrations.
Ever wonder what a mayfly thinks of its one-day lifespan? (They’re curious what a sunset is.) Or how a jellyfish feels about not having a heart? (Sorry, but they’re not sorry.)
This melancholy menagerie pairs the more unsavory facts of animal life with their hilarious thoughts and reactions. Sneakily informative, and wildly witty, SAD ANIMAL FACTS will have you crying with laughter.
