Brooke Barker’s SAD ANIMAL FACTS is a hilarious hand-illustrated collection of the Animal Kingdom’s more unfortunate truths and we’re laughing so hard we’re crying! Why? Little gems like this and an amazing book trailer:

Fact: Harp seal pups are abandoned on beaches at birth and only 3 out of 10 survive.
Seal Pup: “I’m not on this beach to make friends.”

Fact: Jellyfish have no hearts.
Jellyfish: “Sorry, I’m not sorry.”

Fact: If a female ferret goes into heat and doesn’t mate she will die.
Ferret: “Why isn’t Tinder loading?!!”

Fact: Kiwis can remember a bad memory for 5 years.
Kiwi: “This was our song.”

Brooke also illustrated Adorably Sad Facts about Harry Potter creatures! (Because you know you’ve always wanted to know what a Blast-Ended Skrewt looks like.)

SAD ANIMAL FACTS is available now from Flatiron Books.
