Overview

Each title in this delightful and informative series of young naturalist books looks at a different animal and invites youngsters to guess what it is. Opening with a three-word description and followed by a series of colorful drawings depicting a different part of the animal's body, each book gradually reveals the whole animal to the child reader. Accompanying text and additional illustrations provide further clues to the animal's identity and give an insight into how it lives. The books conclude with an illustration of the animal's young, a map of the world showing its homelands, a fun quiz, and a glossary.

Mysterious artwork achieves its goal of introducing the tiger one element at a time to the reader. How and what the tiger hunts, its physical traits, grooming habits, noises, babies, and environment are all mentioned throughout the text. A world map shows children where the Bengal tiger thrives.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3These lively introductions to the animal kingdom will appeal to children. Both books use hints to encourage children to identify the featured animals. Each double-page spread focuses on a particular physical characteristic, habitat, or diet of the featured creature. For example, in Brown, Fierce, and Furry, the left-hand page reads "Here is my paw" and shows a close-up of a paw. On the opposite side, the text states "I have long, sharp claws to dig up roots and little animals from under the ground." At the end of the book, the animal is revealed to be a brown bear. Fast, Strong, and Striped provides similar information about a tiger. Both titles include a map showing where the creatures live. Brightly colored, realistic paintings accompany the clearly written texts.Ann M. Burlingame, North Regional Library, Raleigh, NC
