The award-winning team of What Do You Do with a Tail Like This? and Move! once again create a nonfiction picture book that is amazingly beautiful, fun, and filled with all sorts of interesting facts. Here, Steve Jenkins and Robin Page investigate sibling relationships throughout the animal kingdom. In this book you will learn that anteaters are always only children and nine-banded armadillos are always born as identical quadruplets. You will also learn that falcons play-hunt in the sky and that hyena cubs fight to the death. This is the perfect book for animal lovers young and old!

Gr 2-4- Realistic, handsome cut/torn paper collages form a visual lure for this attractive book on siblings and young in the animal world. Only children (giant anteaters), quadruplets (armadillos), families (elephants), and armies (termites) are just some of the creatures depicted and described. Brief paragraphs provide factual information on their behaviors and physical characteristics, some of which are further detailed in the "Animal Facts" pages (though the parthenogenesis of whiptail lizards is not addressed other than to mention the absence of males). Enough data is afforded to satisfy many children, and adults are offered some further readings to suggest to the insatiably curious. Eye-catching, and with an interesting approach to the animal world, this book should appeal to a wide variety of ages and interests.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
