It will be weird to hear my voice coming out of a short, fat, purple, sweaty creature with a Reading accent. It's all here. Or rather, it's mostly here since the new Flanimals Pop Up was published. The fourth book in the award-winning, best-selling Flanimals series is out now - featuring the terrifying Bletchling.

Dec 25, melydia rated it liked it. A bizarre collection of monsters who are ugly, gross, and pretty much useless. I'm sure this is fun to read aloud to a young child who would enjoy such things, but as a stuffy old adult I just sort of breezed through it and felt a little confused. View 2 comments.
Apr 08, Rhys Causon rated it really liked it. Oct 29, Adam rated it really liked it. This is a fantastic and funny book for all ages. Young children will love the pictures illustrated by Rob Steen adults will laugh at the descriptions of the seemingly useless animals and their behaviour's and if you're like me you will just laugh at the funny names of the various Flanimals.
This is not a story book more of a non-fact encyclopedia, but will get Blimple Sprent, Clunge Ambler, Glonk and Wobboid Mump are just some of the weird and wonderful creatures from the mind of Ricky Gervais. This is not a story book more of a non-fact encyclopedia, but will get a child's imagination running wild in Literacy and Art lessons. I would recommend this book to everyone and it will have you chuckling from the first page.
Sep 08, Myra rated it liked it. Although there definitely are some subtle things in there just for the grown-ups. Oct 19, S. I recently had the chance to purchase a copy of this book - I have been wanting to read this book for years. It was as crazy and as funny as I expected it to be and the illustrations were brilliant.
This is something to return to again in the future, for definite. Jul 09, Georgia rated it it was amazing. One of the most hilarious things I've ever read - even now, years after first coming across the joy of Flanimals :D Great imagination and humour!
Loved it! Jul 09, Stuart rated it really liked it Shelves: 1-picture-books. Good and silly; ideal for phonics perhaps? No plotline which is a shame. Perhaps Ss create their own stories using flanimals? Nov 30, Sarah Sammis rated it it was amazing Shelves: borrowed , read-in When my son was first discovering his love of monsters, comedian and television writer Ricky Gervais was starting a new series of monster books with Flanimals. Sean and I have only recently discovered the series thanks to the public library picking up the first two books in the series.
Flanimals introduces a bunch of different unusual monster animals. Some are scary. Some are cute. Some start out cute and grow to be scary. There's a food chain too.
Each flanimal has a funny comment or two about wh When my son was first discovering his love of monsters, comedian and television writer Ricky Gervais was starting a new series of monster books with Flanimals. Each flanimal has a funny comment or two about what they do or where their name comes from. A lot of those jokes are still going over my son's head. He looks at me strange when I start snickering I read over his shoulder. Nonetheless, there's nothing too racy with the humor.
It's pretty sophomoric. Apparently Gervais is now in the process of adapting the books into a film. Apr 27, Robert Day rated it liked it. There are three of these Flanimal books, and I got all three from a table top sale for a pound - absolute bargain.
I read the first one, this one, out loud to my wife whilst showing her the pictures - don't worry, she can read herself, it was just one of those silly things - and contrary to my expectations her sense of humour is very different to mine she totally enjoyed it.
She laughed throughout the book with her eyes wide like a little kid's every time I turned the page to reveal a new marve There are three of these Flanimal books, and I got all three from a table top sale for a pound - absolute bargain. She laughed throughout the book with her eyes wide like a little kid's every time I turned the page to reveal a new marvel.
I guess I could take it or leave it to be honest. There seems to be some dispute as to whether these books should be filed under humour or children, and if I had it my way, it would be the latter. Good buy for 33p each, and worth more for the look in my wife's face, but I would have felt cheated had I paid more. Jan 12, Laura rated it really liked it Shelves: picture-books. This is one of those books that seems like it will be funny. Then you start reading it and it is just strange.
But as you keep going, the continued ridiculousness of it all grows on you. By the end I was laughing and thinking maybe I'll look for more of these. Even though, according to the front flap, "Loads of Flanimals were hurt during the making of this book. Dec 01, Jacob rated it liked it.
Not much a narrative in this book as it mostly represents a single monster on each page accompanied by the writer's details of said monster, which range from 2 sentences to a paragraph. The text has Gervais voice and it reads like his guide to Pokemon.
You can almost hear Gervais' voice saying the words out loud and describing things in his British accent as tasting "Brilliant. Dec 13, Anna rated it liked it Shelves: picture-books. I find this book to be really bizarre. My 5 year old son loves it, however. Some of the creatures are a little gross and vicious, some are just odd.

Flanimals is a book and a book series written by comedian Ricky Gervais. The book, illustrated by Rob Steen , depicts a list of seemingly useless or inadequate animals, and their behaviour. The cover Flanimal is the Grundit. In August , Norwich -based writer and artist John Savage issued a High Court writ , claiming that the original book is based on his own work, Captain Pottie's Wildlife Encyclopedia. The writer claims Savage's artistic and literary copyright has been infringed by Gervais. A spokeswoman for Gervais said the concept and illustrations existed before Savage's work. Originally ITV had commissioned a television series based on the books, which had a predicted air date of , but it was later scrapped.
