When animals fall in love

“How do animals do it?” Children are always especially eager to learn about this whenever Katharina von der Gathen talks to them about sex education.

In its pages, we learn about the tenderness of scorpions and the brutality of bedbugs, the gory rivalry that occurs in the stomachs of shark mothers, and the loving care provided by some animal fathers for their progeny.

The book’s distinct layout combined with Anke Kuhl’s illustrations will remind the reader of a classic nature encyclopedia, distinguished by a unique charm and humor. And the fold-out pages, such as “Animal Baby Exhibition” and “Penis Gallery” are great fun!
