Lesser Spotted Animals

by Martin Brown

David Fickling Books




Bison are banned and tigers are taboo. Say goodbye to the gnu, cheerio to the cheetah and poo poo to the panda. The world of Lesser Spotted Animals STARTS HERE! Discover the brilliant beasts you never knew you needed to know about – from the numbat to the zorilla and everything in between.

Forget dry, dusty old tomes and forget those pesky A-listers of the animal kingdom. It’s time they shared the limelight with the animals that most grown-ups haven’t even heard of. A fantastic, funny, factual series that puts the spotlight on lesser-known animals.



As a boy, Martin Brown dreamed of drawing lesser-known animals for a book. When he grew up, he moved from Melbourne, Australia to England, and illustrated the phenomenally successful Horrible Histories series. Now, at last, it’s time for the animals.
