Make way for the world''s weirdest, most wonderful creatures-from the author of the forthcoming A Curious Collection of Dangerous Creatures

Publisher''s Note: A Curious Collection of Peculiar Creatures was previously published in Australia as The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Ugly Animals.

What''s your favorite animal-a majestic lion, a graceful horse? Those are great choices, but have you considered the fangtooth moray eel? It has two rows of icicle-shaped teeth! And the monkey slug caterpillar is ready to cuddle . . . just look out for the stingers all over its body (and its six limbs that technically aren''t legs)!

It''s true, these animals are a little different-but their unusual features often give them incredible superpowers. Take the nearly blind star-nosed mole: Its pink, flower‑shaped nose can detect the microscopic texture of everything it touches, and it does this at warp speed-up to 12 objects per second!

What''s more, many of these weird, wonderful creatures need our help: They''re endangered, and we can''t afford to ignore their well-being any longer. It''s time to find a peculiar creature to love! Why not the blobfish?
Sami Bayly holds a degree in natural history illustration from the University of Newcastle. She''s drawn to the weird and wonderful-finding the beauty and importance in all living things, regardless of their appearance-and is eager to share her appreciation with others. She lives in Newcastle, Australia. Visit her at SamiBayly.com.
