Freakish-looking beasts that are subjects of Randall's commentary include the aye-aye, the Tasmanian devil, and the solenodon. Some of the animals, including the wombat, the opossum, and the American bullfrog, are only moderately nastyass. Randall features some animals that don't seem nasty at all: the emperor tamarin (which lunches on grapes and has a very cool mustache), the pink fairy armadillo, the tarsier (a weirdly cute, timid little primate), and the sloth. Readers who are hoping to find ten animals that are as revolting as the honey badger might be disappointed. Still, Randall manages to poke fun at even the cuddly critters, always in a good-natured way.
Honey Badger Don't Care is filled with impressive photographs, many of which are enhanced with doodles, costumes, and cartoon-style dialog balloons. Randall's description of the animals and their behaviors is educational, if not exactly the stuff of zoology textbooks.Read more ›
If you've seen the video, you know what to expect. If not, then I'll clue you into the awesomeness that this book contains. While you probably won't hear Randall narrating his own show on Animal Planet anytime soon (although we can hope), this book is full of wonderful humor and great insights on animal life. Frankly put, this is a book about animals that's written for those of us who aren't into the long Latin names or dry paragraphs about animal habits. Randall condenses all of these facts into a few pages per animal and it's incredibly fun. If I wasn't won over by the honey badger entry at the beginning of the book, I was won over by the hilarity in the following ones.
I do have to warn parents that they'll probably want to read through this to go over the language and some of the phrases in the book. (One entry suggests that Don Knotts had erm, illicit relations with a bat, but in a non-malicious way.) It's all in good fun and none of it is malicious, but this won't be appropriate for some younger readers.
This was just awesome to read and would make for an excellent late-late Christmas gift. (Or a late Boxing Day gift. Or a Valentine's gift.)
5 out of 5 stars

Did you know that the Honey Badger has no known enemies? Or that the Aye-Aye looks like Don Knotts? Or that when Tasmanian Devils feel threatened they fart? (I didn't know that either!) I also didn't know that the Emporer Tamarin lives for up to 17 years! I also learned that Sloths are born upside down and spend 9-10 hours a day sleeping upside down!

Beware, not a kid's book.
As noted in the description, this is not a kid's book although it looks like one and they will be tempted to pick it up if you have it lying around. Read more
This book is hilarious. Highly recommend if you like the Honey Badger series!Published 13 months ago by Louise Middaugh
HIlarious - just like the video on You Tube. However, it does resemble a children's book on the cover, but is definitely not for kids given the very strong language.Published on August 27, 2014 by DixieD
