Editorial Reviews

Science and Children NSTA
This excellent book should dispel myths long held by many people about animals. Sharp black-and-white photographs enhance the stories. An index and bibliography make it easy to locate information and find out more about the animals. Children and adults should find this book interesting reading.
School Library Journal
Eleven animals with serious public relation problems have their images set straight in this informative book. This book will fascinate and inform any young animal enthusiast.
New York Times Reading Group
At the top of each page, next to a small, striking black-and-white photograph of the subject, commonly believed lies about it are succinctly presented and then debunked....written in engaging, conversational prose.
Kirkus Reviews
Armadillos give birth to two sets of identical twins, all the same sex, and can carry leprosy. The most common natural cause of an elephant's death is starvation. Want to know more? Intriguing, informal, indexed and with bibliography. (nonfiction 9-11)
Book list
A slim volume that should prove highly interesting to browsers as well as students working on animal reports.

The authors smoothly and credibly debunk a series of myths about animals.
