Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Ever wonder how animals protect themselves from predators? Xavier Niz has the answers in this book from the "First Facts" series. Skunks protect themselves by spraying predators in the face with smelly liquid from up to twelve feet away. Some animals, such as the gray tree frog and the polyphemus moth have appearances that help protect them, either by blending in with their surroundings or by resembling a larger animal. Octopuses use dark liquid to hide their escape and a skunk's tale can fall off to allow them to run away. Some animals protect themselves by building very strong homes, such as the mounds termites inhabit. Other animals find safety in numbers. This easy-to-read book is accompanied by photographs of the animals described. A "Hands On" exercise teaches children about natural camouflage. A wonderful book for the budding zoologist. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 6 up.
