From animals that can sing a tune to others that no longer fly, this improbable bestiary is a hilarious mockumentary with an encyclopaedic twist. It is filled with funny and outrageous facts, descriptions, spoofs and, of course, a plethora of fantastic creatures.
Professor O’Logh has travelled the world in search of astonishing animals and insects to classify. He has consigned all of his drawings and writings in a notebook that was lost for years. But the naturalist’s notebook has just been found and it has been published as a rare encyclopedia. Its pages are filled with creatures that were never observed before. Do they really exist? Did the professor make them up? No matter if he did or not, this notebook is simply fascinating!
