* "...An eminently browsable overview with all the clickbait appeal of websites and paperbacks with redeployed content but with some thoughtful implications about animals... Animal-loving kids, sensationalism-loving kids, and facts-loving kids will be surprised to find common ground here."

* "Compelling visual presentation makes the information accessible and exciting. Highly recommended for all science collections."
--School Library Journal, STARRED review

* "The intriguing and engaging format of this title is stimulating on a variety of levels, and the approach should appeal to a wide range of students, especially visual learners, something for which educators will be grateful. A brilliantly executed take on a perennially high-interest topic."
--Booklist, STARRED review

* "A special treat for all who love animal statistics."
--Kirkus, STARRED review

"Steve Jenkins's work... is characterized by exquisite cut- and torn-paper collages, a particular affinity for zoology, a plethora of pithy facts and trivia, and an elegant design aesthetic that allows readers to navigate information-heavy pages without becoming confused or disoriented." --Horn Book
