Reviews

"From a skilled team, another intriguing invitation to explore the animal world."
--Kirkus

"It's a splendid introduction and a memorable read-aloud for young children."
--Booklist

* "Loaded with nuggets of information and layered in humor, this is a winning picture book that is sure to inform as well as entertain."
--School Library Journal, starred review

* "Jenkins's torn-paper creations emphasize the idea of interspecies dialogue--readers stare face to face with the animals, who happily divulge what makes them special."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The language of the questions is funny, varied, and irreverent, and the answers are as personable as they are compactly informative...Though the text is accessible for reading alone, the Q&A format is a natural for a lively and unusual readaloud--funny voices optional but recommended."
