I really enjoyed the book Funny You Should Ask, but I did have a quibble with it.

On pg 200, it says "Even though there are no dinosaurs left, it still makes sense for a lot of mammals to hide during the day."

In fact, since birds are dinosaurs, there are around 10,000 species in existence today. After the above quote, there is a reference to rabbits being hunted by hawks, so indeed some mammals do still hide during the day to avoid dinosaurs! "Even though there are no non-avian dinosaurs left..." would be more technically accurate.

That is actually a rather good quibble - thank you!
