Welcome to the World Animal Games! Your hosts for the athletic extravaganza are Walrus and Cockatoo. Numerous amazing animals representing every corner of the world take part in the competition. Each event has four contestants who might be insect, mammal, bird, fish or reptile. Whether the creatures are vying for the title in sprinting, weight lifting or swimming (just to name a few), there will only be one winner. Some of the results might surprise you! After the animal champion is announced they are compared to us humans. The illustrations are fun and cartoony which will make a fun learning experience for all ages.
