Editorial Review

[T]he perfect book for young animal lovers, particularly those kids who are now reading on their own and who are visual learners, fact finders, and trivia seekers ... [T]his fascinating books of discovery both entices and educates with explanations that are clear, simple, and filled with the weird and wonderful. And it's fun.
