Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
If you like reading about strangeness, read this book and marvel over the unusual facts presented. Who can resist reading and learning about real creatures of the universe that we did not even know existed? This picture book, with twenty-two chapters and forty-seven pages, discusses cats, octopi, Martians, water bears, and many fascinating topics in between. Illustrations are not only informative but beautiful as well. They occupy almost two full pages while the text takes only one fourth of the two pages. There are many astonishing facts. One concerns bathing in melted comets, which is described as strange liquid from outer space. It is also interesting to learn that naturally occurring compasses within wildlife guide them to their destinations, while humans have lost this ability. The ugliest creatures ever found are Angler fish. They live deep down in the sea. You will learn how their love life is quite different from other creatures. Another chapter discusses how a rare delicacy in one country may be repulsive in another. The index at the end of the book will be extremely helpful to readers. Curious minds will enjoy reading this book of true, strange facts. Reviewer: Jennie DeGenaro
