Be prepared to have your child totally consumed by flanimals. Thanks god it isn't a collecting card game!! If only there was more flanimal books. Or perhaps a flanimal sound proof room!
Parents, buy this book! It all about weird made up creatures, kind of like a funny encyclopedia of monsters. Kids love it.
What I have done to stem the tide of flanimalism is to give my kid pen and paper and say "now YOU make your own flanimals!"
Buy it and Try it!!
I'm not going to sit here and complain like some others have that this is for kids and feel duped. No, because I think it is great for adults.
However, many people on here have stated that this book is overwelmingly a kids book. I disagree, and here is why.
There is a lot of adult undertones scattered throughout this book, some more obvious than others. Many of which kids wouldn't get. For instance, the Plumboid Dopplers "scientific" name is Scrotus Boggelum. Guess what he looks like; a scrotum. I think this just goes to show that the author did have adults in mind, at least a little, when making this book.
I do realize that kids will likely not catch onto that. But other things might not be that good for kids to read. Like ripping creatures heads off, and popping the eyes out of one called a Puddloflaj.
If you get this book with your kids in mind I would suggest reading it to them and skipping over all the things that are a bit questionable.
That all being said, I would like to say once again that I LOVE this book. Unlike the other people who complain about it. If you think your child can handle it, then by all means go for it, I am not one for censorship. I beleive that many kids are sheltered a bit too much, but this may not be for every kid.
I can't wait to get a copy of Flanimals II!
The book also details how the various Flanimals interact or react to other Flanimal species. You'll see how a as a Grundit stamps out a Coddleflop! You'll observe a baby Munty Fumple as it naps...so cute! In chapter three you will put your knowledge to the test and try to identify the Flanimal species by their footprints or by their behavior patterns.
Through it all Rob Steens wildly cartoonish and garish illustrations bring the Flanimals to life before your eyes. Think of Flanimals as Dr. Seuss for the 21st century with it's bizarre text and equally bizarre illustrations. Kids will love the crazy names such as Clunge Ambler that looks like someone's big toe or the Offledermis that: "Born completely inside out", this offensive little beast "lives inside itself to avoid its own smell."
Truly hilarious and wild stuff. A pity some people just didn't get it.

As a child, I thought this book was hilarious. As an adult it just seems weird, but my kids get a kick out of it. I don't recommend for young children.Published 2 months ago by Katrina

If you like books about odd subjects then you may like this. Not much of a whole stort but rather a collection describing imaginary characters. Read morePublished 20 months ago by T. Ashton
My son is not a huge reader, but when it comes to this book, he will read it over and over again.Published on May 3, 2014 by Misty
My kids like the names and pictures and I like like the hysterical writes ups.
The version I have is thicker almost plastic pages, like a field guide. Read more
