ANIMAL FACT, ANIMAL FABLE

. This unusual and striking picture book combines fun with scientific fact. Seymour Simon has collected a fascinating variety of common beliefs about animals and presented them in the form of a guessing game. Each belief appears on one page with a witty illustration by Diane deGroat (the "Gilbert" books) that carries the belief to its funniest extreme and asks, "Fact or Fiction?" The correct answer appears on the following page, accompanied by a scientifically accurate illustration that shows the animal as it really behaves. "The best kind of book, one that entertains while it educates."-Publishers Weekly
