A modern-day bestiary of the most incredible animals the world has ever seen—with 200 full-color illustrations Our planet is a writhing mass of wondrous life, positively popping at the seams with peculiar creatures. Life has wriggled its way into every conceivable nook and cranny, and nature has belched out organisms into even the most inhospitable environments. A Beastly Menagerie is a compendium of 100 of these most curious of creatures, from beasts that can fit on a pinhead and survive a saunter into space, to sea creatures just waiting for an excuse to smash a ship to smithereens. And let's not forget to mention the remarkable Jesus Christ lizard, the bone-eating snot flower, the pink fairy armadillo, and the zombie fly. This beautifully illustrated collection will delight and bedazzle fans of the amazing animal kingdom in equal measure. Narrated by the affable eccentric Sir Pilkington-Smythe and assisted by his cronies at The Proceedings of the Ever So Strange, each entry is an enlightening and marvelous foray into our world and all its wonders . . . topped off with a soupçon of silliness. An excerpt Sharks are pretty pleased with themselves, and so they should be. You see, they are basically rippling slabs of muscle in gunmetal grey, with row upon row of huge razor-sharp teeth—awesome eating machines that have remained unchanged for millennia. . . . Of course, some sharks don't look so tough. Think of the bizarre hammerhead, goblin, and frilled sharks. Not that they're to be trifled with. And then there's the cookie cutter shark, a sniveling little guttersnipe who looks more like a fat lady's arm holding a kitchen utensil than the pinnacle of predatory evolution.

Unheimlich witzig und entzückend gruselig! Die fast 11-jährige Anastasia hört eigentlich nicht auf Unkenrufe ... Aber als die ungeliebte Schulsekretärin Miss Sneed mit der Mono-Augenbraue sie aus dem Unterricht reißt, spürt sie sofort, dass ein Unheil auf sie lauert. Und richtig: Anastasias Eltern sind einem seltsamen Staubsaugerunfall zum Opfer gefallen und müssen sich an einem weit entfernten Ort davon erholen. Stattdessen stehen zwei unbekannte Großtanten bereit, um Anastasia mitzunehmen. Tante Prim und Tante Prude wohnen in einem uralten verstaubten Heim, in dem Anastasia bald mulmig wird: Schon das Gelände wird von bösen Pudeln mit Metallgebissen bewacht. Nachts heulen Geräusche durch das Haus. Und an den Wänden hängen Bilder von verschwundenen Kindern und von finsteren Damen mit Monobrauen ...

Eine Reise an die Grenzen des Vorstellbaren In einem entlegenen Sektor des Weltraums taucht eines Tages ein rätselhaftes Artefakt auf – eine riesige schwarze Kugel, die sich allen Kontaktversuchen verweigert. Messungen ergeben, dass das Objekt tausend Milliarden Jahre alt sein muss, älter also als unser Universum. Doch wie ist das möglich? Und wer oder was steckt dahinter?
