Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–6—Adding another dimension—the third, to be exact—to many of the garish, glutinous creatures portrayed in British comedian Gervais's three previous galleries doesn't improve their looks any, but definitely adds to their gonzo appeal. From the glaring purple Mernimbler to the bizarrely portmanteau Squeeg ("thought to be the missing link between prehistoric Strankulators and the first Dunklings"), more than two dozen bulbous-eyed monsters rear up, slide past, or, in the case of the "jub-wobbling" Splunge (scientific name: Jello Snurbloid), explode in a mix of large central pop-ups and smaller figures in folded corner booklets. One particularly notable spread titled "Flanimal Evolution" sideswipes a certain famous Michelangelo painting. The paper engineering is more varied and inventive than Gervais's free-association commentary, but the stream of nonsense words have a giggle-inducing cumulative effect. Not only should this be popular on its own, but a "Flanimals" film due out in 2011 will also likely crank up demand.—John Peters, New York Public Library

Review

"Even though they’ve sold millions, won awards, and are currently being made into a Hollywood blockbuster, I’ve always thought that FLANIMALS lacked a certain poppy-upness. That is not a problem anymore."
— Ricky Gervais — Quote

I bought this book when it was on a great sale ($3) on Amazon, and now that I have received it, I am glad I got it. This book has 6 big pop-up scenes and the bottom corners generally have windows you can open which shows more flanimal types. The writing in it is kind of quirky and uses a lot of made up words to describe made up creatures. This is a book purely to marvel at the creatures and enjoy: there is nothing to really be learned here.

However, Ricky Gervais creates satire of the human race quite subtly in this book. There is a creature that looks humanoid and believes in a creator known as "Grob". This is obviously a reference to God. He uses the adjective "mental" to describe the particular notion.

Of course, kids probably won't see the connection and most adults would laugh to themselves about it because it is all in good fun.
I think this book has some fantastic paper scenes and is definitely worth the $3-8 you spend on it. It makes me want to buy other pop-up books!

(Retail for the book is $20)

Pick it up!!

Ricky Gervais is one of my beloved heroes (his devotion to saving & love for animals). His pop-up is fantastic! I'm proud to have it displayed on my book shelf, among all my favorites. I started collecting pop up books last year, and this is one of my firsts, along with a rare copy of Alice in Wonderland.

Warning: the spine is fragile - I actually had to return the book twice due to damage before or during delivery. The third copy came in tact, but I see that much care should be taken with it. If buying for a human spawn, you should get the regular books, not the pop-up, if you want it to remain in good condition.

This book is awesome! I gave it to my nephew for Christmas and he thought it was great. He had so much fun turning the pages and the pop-ups even amazed the adults. As with any pop-up book, it's pretty frail, so I wouldn't give it to any child under the age of 6 or 7.

Flanimals is not for younger audiences. It is a children's book for sure but careful with younger children who are afraid of monsters or you think may be at the age that this may be the case. The "animals" in this book can be scary at first glance but become more fun and interesting and the children re-read the book.

The pages have these flanimals that jump out at you when you turn each page. The book is well constructed and should last as long as the pop-up books did that we grew up with maybe longer. There are plenty of weird creatures and things to do in the book that it keeps children coming back to it.

Flanimals is full of color and personality, just like the author Ricky Gervais. I would recommend this book to maybe 5th and 6th graders but middle schoolers will also enjoy it. It is up to the parent though. Some kids have bigger imaginations than others and this book will help that grow.

Too scary for some kids.... The pictures are very unique, but there's no actual story. It's just descriptive info on every character. If you have children who are easily scared, this is not a book for them. It will simply give them new things to fear for. I think it might be appropriate for a 10 year old, no younger.

I bought this as a gift for my husband. Not for little children, because I'm not an idiot and I know who Ricky Gervais is, eg; people who gave Flanimals a bad review. Anyways my husband loved it, it's probably the best gift I've ever given him. Not to brag or anything but I'm a pretty good gift giver. I love it to, we have shown all of our friends this book and they love it! So they should probably be expecting it for their birthdays :)! If there are any spelling errors, I typed this on my phone so give me a break! All in all, if you are intelligent, you will like this book. The following people might find it offensive:

1. People that think dinosaurs never existed
2. People that don't follow/know Ricky Gervais

That is all.

I consider myself a great gift giver so I gave it to me. I was so over joyed that I sent me a Thank You card. Not just something dashed off on a post it note. This book is a wonderful adventure,not unlike riding an elephant while dressed like Batman. If you fancy yourself as having a sense of humor and lovevawesome (you know you do) get this book for people you like ,they will love it and you will be the new cool guy at their next party.

I gave this to a friends two (and-a-half) year old and I hear he's been looking at it everyday now for weeks. He's learned all the wacky names of all the Flanimals and we're doing our best to derive their latin names for him. (Maybe Ricky could give us those in his next Flanimals book) Rowan is also learning all their odd behaviors and even interacts with the pop-ups. An interesting thing is that the kid is very gentle when he handles the Flanimals, there are different textures on the wings and teeth that he will feel very carefully. The only negative thing I'd have to say is that you can't get it for a kendal.
