"Stories about fascinating animals are great tools for whetting the appetite for knowledge. Teachers and parents will find many good tales for reaching children, including ideas about how to learn more by going out and observing."

"Ross Piper has written this book clearly and for everyone to read and it is well laid out. One does not need a degree in zoology to enjoy the descriptions and users can dip into it and find out about specific species without having to read the book from cover-to-cover. It is also interesting that one of the entries is for the very extraordinary animal - Humans!"
