Suitable for Age 7-11

Baillie Gifford Borders Book Festival Online 2020
Broadcast Date
Sunday 13 September

Do you like animals? Do you like drawing? Then join mega-selling Horrible Histories illustrator Martin Brown for a fun-filled look at his book Lesser Spotted Animals. Why is it always the famous animals that get all the attention? The lions and tigers, pandas and polar bears. It’s time to hear about some of the other wow wildlife out there.

Find out about the solenodon, a venomous mammal that isn’t immune from its own poison. Or the dagger-toothed flower bat that’s not quite as tough as it sounds. Or maybe the gaur or the numbat or the southern right whale dolphin. Discover more about some of the brilliant beasts you never knew you needed to know about. Then – draw them!
