A cryptozoological kids book that not only introduces the scientific method but also emphasises the importance of imagination and play.

A book full of advice about how not to make a flop's life hard! What is a flop? A flop is malleable, can’t make a telephone call on its own, can’t wear a collar, and many other things besides. There are also hundreds of different sorts of flops. In a humorous, pseudo-scientific guide, Delphine Durand creates a world teeming with flops, describing their characteristics and lifestyles with great humour and precision. Delphine Durand spent her childhood in Senegal, then in Montpellier. She has worked in children’s books, advertising, and for the press since 1996.
