Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A picture book that looks at the noses of six different animals. Each one is introduced in a flat verse (the mole-"Who needs a nose/pink as a flower,/a nose with twenty-two little fingers/that wiggle and squirm when/searching for worms?") and ends with the question, "Who needs that nose?" A detailed drawing of the nose by itself appears opposite the verse and the following spread shows the whole animal. The concept of animal design is brilliantly handled in Steve Jenkins and Robin Page's What Do You Do with a Tail Like This? (Houghton, 2003), so the real question for this title is: who needs it?-Kathleen Whalin, York Public Library, ME Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The creators of If I Had a Tail (2001) move to the other end of six creatures, pairing close-ups and clues in a guessing game for young readers: "Who needs a nose that swings and sways, a long gray nose that works like a hand to pick up bunches of hay?" As the animals include a bat, a star-nosed mole, and a proboscis monkey, the answers aren't always obvious the first time around-which will make repeat reading all the more satisfying. Neidigh contributes realistic, clearly detailed near views, then pulls back on alternate spreads for a full-body portrait of each animal in a natural setting. Warrick properly wraps up the riddles with a child's nose, then adds a spread of explanatory notes. A pleaser for fans of Beatrice Schenk de Regniers's It Does Not Say Meow (1972) or Hana Machotka's Breathtaking Noses (1992). (Picture book/nonfiction. 5-7)
