A big animal welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday! Today I am eagerly waiting for Wow in the World: Wow in the Wild by Mindy Thomas, Guy Raz + Jack Teagle! Well, the official title is much longer… “Wow in the World: Wow in the Wild: The Amazing World of Animals”. But that would make the title to this post way too long. XD
I absolutely loved Wow in the World about the human body so I was super excited when late last year I found out that they would make a second book! This time about nature, about animals, and I just CANNOT wait. Just a few weeks more (and maybe longer if Amazon doesn’t get it because that is what happening to Covet right now) until I can have it in my hands! It sounds absolutely hilarious and as a big animal lover I cannot wait to get some fun and funny facts on animals. Curious to see what sections they will have in the book, there are a few spoilers in the blurb, which only makes me curious what the rest of the sections are. Plus, I definitely need to know what the six signs are that you might be a fish (swimming/living in water at least). Jack Teagle’s illustrations were fab last time and I can’t wait to have a whole new book with his work~
Now please can it be April?
