Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS Tafuri's familiar style of animal drawing is set off to good advantage here by generous amounts of white background, which give the book a refreshingly crisp look. In an easy question-and-answer format, children are asked to identify various animals from various portions of their anatomy, such as, ``What has a bill?'' Each answer is provided on a large two-page spread. Older children may prefer similar books such as Beau Gardiner's Guess What (Lothrop, 1985) or Eric Carle's perennial favorite, Do You Want to Be My Friend? (Crowell, 1971), but the littlest are sure to enjoy Tafuri's latest gift to them. Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library
