About the Book

Axolotes, chinchillas, and sugar gliders–oh my!

In this charmingly illustrated follow-up to their first bestselling collaboration, Big Words for Little Geniuses, Susan and James Patterson create a collection of the world’s oddest and cutest animals that only little geniuses would know!

From sloths to spoonbills and panda ants to pangolins, little geniuses will love learning about all of the unusual, adorable animals that live on this planet. More than 50 little-known flyers, swimmers, and crawlers are included in this book, whimsically illustrated by artist Hsinping Pan. Cuddly Critters for Little Geniuses will remind you that nature contains many wonders–and these cute and curious creatures are no exception!

About the Authors

Susan Solie Patterson has dreamed of writing and art directing a children’s book since she received her Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The bestselling Big Words for Little Geniuses was her first book with her husband, James Patterson.

James Patterson holds the Guinness World Record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers, and his books have sold more than 375 million copies worldwide. In 2015, Patterson created a new children’s book imprint, JIMMY Patterson, whose mission is simple: “We want every kid who finishes a JIMMY Book to say, ‘PLEASE GIVE ME ANOTHER BOOK.'”
