Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This fascinating book contains fourteen collections of eight animals with descriptions of each. The reader's job is to guess the common trait. Illustrations are first rate and the animals are both unusual and interesting. Vocabulary can be a problem. With sentences like "My body continuously eliminates fluids, making me susceptible to dehydration," most kids will need access to an adult. Most adults won't mind. Where else can one learn that an American Short-tailed Shrew has a poisonous bite or that a Star Nosed Mole has 22 tentacles on its nose, each of which is "loaded with electro-receptors." The book is ideal for a classroom game in which eight students are selected to read the animal descriptions aloud while the rest have to guess the common trait. 2002, Boyds Mills Press,
