This riddling picture book begins, 'Everyone has a birthday', challenging young readers to work out which baby animal has been born from clues in each set of parents' birth announcements.

They start with Mr. and Mrs. Night Hunter announcing their new 'little balls of fluff' additions to the nest. The page following each announcement shows the proud family, so that readers can see if they guessed right. It also includes information on the babies' early habits, for example 'A baby blue whale drinks enough milk to gain 200 pounds every day for the first few weeks.' Wow!

At the back of the book, kids can learn more about the creatures they've just met in Animal Fun Facts. There's also an animal Number's Game, and a template to create your own Birth Announcement for a family member or a pet.
