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

Awesome book! The pop ups are great. The writing is cute, but we honestly don't ever read the book. The kids just love the pictures too much.Published 9 months ago by Magnolia D.

I can see why this book captures a child's interest. It is cleverly written,the pop-ups are elaborate and it is cleverly written. And therein lies the danger. Read morePublished on April 3, 2014 by home2books
