    Employing the same format as Lesser Spotted Animals (2017), this follow-up offers readers information about even more unusual creatures. Some—like the white-ringed ribbon seal and Blaineville's beaked whale, which has two tusks pointing up from its weird shaped beak—are so rare that scientists don't know whether they're threatened or not. Others, like the vicious yellow-throated marten or the patas monkey (the fastest monkey on earth!), are quite common and going strong (for now) in their native habitats. The rest are threatened by poaching or habitat destruction—part of Brown's goal in this engagingly written title is to educate readers about lesser-known species that are no less deserving of conservation than the big guys. Each two-page spread features an animal or related animals with a humorous, page-filling cartoon illustration, a few clever paragraphs of information, and inset boxes of stats and facts. The wry tone and big-eyed animals make this very appealing, but it's the unusual creatures that will draw in animal lovers, especially those who are bored by the usual selection in animal-fact books. Grades 2-5. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
