Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Each page has an acetate layer set into heavy stock that details the internal organs of a spider or scorpion, giving the reader a true "look inside". The upper portion of each page has more text with information about the world of spiders and scorpions. Lots of fun facts are presented-did you know tarantulas may live 30 years or more? Or that some scorpions sing? A fascinating glimpse into the world of creepy-crawlers.
School Library Journal
PreS-Wormell is a master of the linoleum block print. His well-defined pictures of animals capture and hold viewers' attention. However, as concept books, the assembled series of images have some problems. The difficulties are most apparent in What I Eat. Some foods shown are those that are eaten in the wild: seals are paired with fish and elephants with leaves. However, a wasp is shown opposite a jelly jar, and a duck's food is bread. Even more curious is the fact that a dog is pictured on the cover, but not inside. Similarly, readers never learn where the mouse on the cover of Where I Live resides. In addition, there are large discrepancies in the size relationships. Viewers cannot get an accurate sense of the size of a crab, for example, as it appears to be larger than the tide pool opposite it. Marginal purchases.-Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
