Baby animals don't play with toys. They don't have favourite colours. And they don't learn songs unless for self-defence.
In this beautifully illustrated compendium of sweet and sad facts, Brooke Barker takes us into the world of baby animals and shows us just how complicated and adorable their creation and fight for survival can be, from the moose who try to mate with cars, to the single parrots who talk to blenders and the newborn elephants who can't control their trunks.
If you already think you'd like to hug a baby animal Sad Animal Facts: Baby Talk will make you realise just how much they need it.
Brooke Barker is a writer and illustrator who lives in Portland, Oregon. She is the author and illustrator of Sad Animal Facts and Sad Animal Facts: Baby Talk. Her favourite animal is the Malayan tapir.
