What do you really know about giraffes? Did you know the Queen of Norway is the sworn enemy of giraffes? Did you know that giraffes invented plastic? Are you aware of the fact that giraffes came to Earth on a conveyor belt from Neptune? THIS BOOK HAS PICTURES TO PROVE IT. You’re laughing, but it’s true. Seriously.

Pretty much the only book about ocean wildlife you'll ever need. Packed with pertinent information, such as the reason the deep sea is so dark is because it's covered in good quality navy blue curtains from Pottery Barn, that the culture of the sea relies heavily on musical theater, and that most barracudas speak Spanish and some German and want to direct films. But the most important information, to me, is found in the book's introduction:

"One interesting thing about the sea that you will understand: anything you find in it can be eaten. This is different from trees or rocks or fire, and that makes the ocean unique. If you put your hand in the ocean and pull something out, an animal or plant, you can put it straight into your mouth."

I'll keep this crucial information in mind for the rest of my life.
