Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Without hems or haws, this new look at the paws and claws of the animal world is a charmer. After citing some general facts, the book proceeds to enlighten young readers on the special capabilities of animal feet: moving quickly; digging; climbing; hanging upside down; maneuvering on snow, sand, and rock; and more. Each skill is explained briefly and with five or six specific examples. Coverage is worldwide and encompasses vertebrates and invertebrates. Appealing, full-color illustrations spotlight every creature described. Although some of the information can be found in other sources, including Anita Ganeri's Animal Movements (Barron, 1991) and Keiko Yamashita's very good Paws, Wings & Hooves (Lerner, 1993), Greenaway's book is a nifty compilation of diverse facts. This is not a first-priority purchase, but it is eye-catching.-Amy Adler, Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, OH
