Staff Reviews

Like a tabloid for the animal kingdom, this book brings you the most unfortunate gossip about our world's denizens. Dwarf lemurs? They coat their homes with poo. Baby giraffes? They fall 6 ft to the ground when born. Whimsical illustrations provide the perfect fodder for starting awkward conversations with strangers. [sweet pea]

— From Sad Animal Facts


New York Times Bestseller!

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.
