Synopses & Reviews
"With trademark wit, British television star Gervais provides spicy commentary about the 'useless and pointless' Flanimals, who appear for the first time as 3-D pop-ups. A toothy Mernimbler's arms open wide, the ill-behaved Grundit bounds after a vegetal Puddloflaj, and a spread about Flanimal evolution delivers a hilariously profane take on Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam, while mini-booklets detail additional Flanimal characteristics. Kids can get in on the mischief, too, helping a Hemel Sprot 'get chewed to death and swallowed by [a] Sprot Guzzlor,' via pull-tab. Whatever they are, exactly, the Flanimals lend themselves well to the pop-up stage. Ages 5 up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
