Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisa Colozza Cocca
They smell, they have awful eating habits, and they love filth. The animals in this entry to the "Disgusting Stuff" series are sure to disgust and delight readers. The colorful photographs and quick fun facts will draw readers into the text. The friendly tone of the text will hold even the most reluctant reader's attention. Each animal is described in a two page spread, making it easy for readers to pick up and put down the book without losing momentum. The highlight of the book, of course, is the cast of characters, including: dung beetles, polecats, oxpeckers, leaping lizards, and tapeworms. Readers learn how the animals' disgusting characteristics and habits help the species survive in the wild. Back matter includes an extensive glossary and suggestions for where to find more information about the animals. In addition, the glossary words and definitions are given on the bottom of the page the words first appear on, a great extra for struggling or reluctant readers. The book will appeal to a wide age range of readers. Reviewer: Lisa Colozza Cocca
