Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Hauth's funny, eloquent poems celebrate the often-grisly realities of the food chain, depicted in Clark's scraggly ink and watercolor illustrations. A mole gags on a banana slug, a rat "gets a hug" from a boa constrictor, and a flattened toad becomes a roadkill restaurant ("In adjoining rooms, they dine al fresco—/ upper thigh for ants, lower thigh for wasps"). Readers will learn plenty along the way: "Eating Words," points out that "vore means eat" and "carni means meat," therefore, "carnivores eat/ snakes and lizards, deer and lamb,/ carrion, birds, fish, and ham." Appended notes provide additional animal facts. A satisfying mix of tutelage and repartee. Ages 7–10. (Feb.)
Kirkus Reviews

The conclusion of this volume's title poem—"finding food / is not a joke. / Living things must eat / or croak"—with its blunt appraisal of the whey of the world per se, sets the tone of Hauth and Clark's graphic exploration of who eats what. As the poet delicately surveys the somewhat unsavory aspects of survival, the illustrator's hilarious watercolor-and-ink renderings defuse the deadliness of the subject matter. The result is an enriching overview of the natural world spiced with a Dorothy Parker–esque sense of the macabre that children will absolutely relish. A telling example is "Waste Management," in which a light treatment of the turkey vulture's carrion-loving ways—"It likes to feast before the worms, / which saves us all from stink and germs"—is dramatized. Serenely smiling, it pulls ruby, taffy-like sinews from a ribcage while a tiny fly rests on the tip of a cloven hoof separated from its former haunches by a bloody tire track. Other poems look at the wildly diverse ways in which organisms lure or capture their prey; still others break down sophisticated concepts like symbiosis and parasitism in brilliantly accessible terms. Delectable poetic lessons on the food chain designed to help young readers rather literally digest the natural world. (notes on scientific terms and animals discussed, further reading)(Picture book/poetry. 8 & up)
