Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Toads tend to have cold and clammy skins and some of their frog relatives are poisonous. They are among the many creatures featured in this title which is part of "The Really Horrible Guides" series. The text is simple and in a large size, but the occasional placement curving up and around the pictures may challenge the younger readers. If you are squeamish about slimy creatures, this guide may be "too horrible" for you, but it will appeal to kids who love enlarged pictures of gross looking slugs, snails, worms and other creepy crawlies. For more try The Really Hairy Scary Spider, The Really Fearsome Blood-Loving Vampire Bat, and The Really Wicked Droning Wasp.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Dozens of small varmints are featured in these broad introductions. In a format similar to the "Eyewitness" series, double-page sections briefly address such topics as defense mechanisms, special characteristics, etc. About a half-dozen sharp color photographs of representative species are presented per spread, accompanied by short blocks of text. Some sentences curve around illustrations instead of appearing in blocks, an eye-catching, but often difficult-to-read arrangement. Horrible focuses on cold-blooded, generally slimy creatures; while Wicked concerns venomous or blood-sucking invertebrates. The combination of clear color enlargements with bits of large-print text is attractive. While the material presented is clearly written, it is sometimes oversimplified. Often, scientific terms are employed, but not defined in the text, such as "chrysalis," "antennae," "palps," "tentacles," "proboscis," etc. Other important terms are omitted. For instance, both titles describe some behaviors of various caterpillars, but the term "larvae" is not mentioned. The lack of a glossary is a real handicap. Another omission-the actual size of most animals shown is not given. Ginny Johnston and Judy Cutchins's Slippery Babies (Morrow, 1991) and D. M. Souza's What Bit Me? (Carolrhoda, 1991) provide more detailed information on the characteristics of some of these animals.-Karey Wehner, San Francisco Public Library
