Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Laura J. Brown
Readers who love the weird, strange and unusual things in life and are up to solving a good mystery or figuring out riddles will love this nature lover's, creepy critters dream book. It offers plain old-fashioned fun to read and learn about little-known animals and creatures that share the planet. It is full of interesting facts and all kinds of questions to keep readers guessing about what they are learning. The illustrations and pictures will encourage them to learn more, or gross them out completely. Although the book will lead the reader to wonder whether the information is believable, it is a great book to read and even more fun to share. This book is highly recommended for anyone who is curious about animals and other creatures. Reviewer: Laura J. Brown
