Andy Warner’s Oddball Histories Pests And Pets GN – Little Brown Book for Young Readers explores the little-known side of some of our animal friends. Find out about creatures cute and weird in this book of fascinating facts such: 32 pigeons have received medals for wartime valor, a dog named Laika was the very first creature in space, there is an island in Japan entirely overrun by bunnies, and for a brief time, rats adorned with ribbons were a popular lap pet in upper-class London. Discover these stories as well as new ones about human history from the perspective of our animal companions. These strange but fascinating facts will appeal to the curious of all ages. (There’s more about Warner’s books, and some other quirky nonfiction graphic novels, in this month’s SLJ – Ed.)

Animal Crossing New Horizons Volume 1 GN – Viz Media releases the official adventures of the villagers from Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Find out what the villagers of Animal Crossing: New Horizons get up to when you’re not around! Read goofy gags and silly stories as four humans—a princess, a bookworm, a jokester and an always sleepy Guchan spend some time at the campfire with Gulliver, visit the museum with Blathers, find some fashion from the Able Sisters and go to a night party with Wisp. There are also tips and tricks for playing the video game and profiles of the villagers. Fans of the game will enjoy this different perspective on their favorite villagers.
