About the series:
The world is full of weird, wild and wonderful creatures. At least, that’s how many of them appear to us. To them, their apparent weirdness is not weird at all. The everyday routines of keeping alive and ensuring the survival of their species have caused them to develop habits, skills and appearances that appear outlandish to us but are perfectly normal for them.

These books will look at some of the weird and wonderful ways in which these creatures have adapted to their environment—or had adapted to it until we destroyed or altered it. Now, they need our help in order to survive. Understanding them is a first step to protecting their world—and ours.

Weird, wild and wonderful is a literacy series that lets students explore this aspect of science in an interesting and motivating way. High quality, stimulating pictures provide visual clues to the vocabulary. Short captions and carefully levelled language give students knowledge about these animals while developing their language skills.

Weird, wild and wonderful is suitable for independent reading, guided reading and as part of a science reference library.
