Product Details


The authors bring just the right note of whimsy and scientific accuracy to their task�[a] mischievous, nitty-gritty, unsentimental approach to nature.
—New York Times Book Review

What makes this book a standout is that it manages to integrate very funny humor, gross guts-and-gore, and riveting scientific information.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

Fine fare for younger naturalists.
—Kirkus Reviews

Breezy, engaging, and thoroughly informative�will pique children's curiosity and have them clamoring to learn more about these unique creatures.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Davies' chatty, funny text and Layton's colorful cartoons illustrations, as playful and immediate as they were in Davies <i>Poop </i>(2004), will pull kids into the fascinating book about survival.
—Booklist (starred review)
