You’re Called What?! By Kes Gray


Welcome to the Ministry of Silly Animal Names where all the creatures have one thing in common: they want to change their names.

A unique and rip-roaringly funny, tongue-twisting story full of weird and wonderful real creatures and facts at the end that will amaze. Written by Kes Gray, the bestselling, award-winning author of Oi Frog! Oi Dog!

Ice Cream Cone Worm. Monkeyface Prickleback. Pink Fairy Armadillo. You’re called WHAT?!

Have a look at our selection of Non-Fiction animal books and see if you can find an unusual, strange or just plain silly animal. Let us know what you find!
