"The poems are expertly crafted in a variety of forms (identified in the backmatter). The language is lively and the imagery appropriate. With alliteration, internal rhymes, and careful rhythm, these will be a delight to read aloud and learn.... Meganck's engaging digital drawings give each creature pop-eyes and attitude.... A delightful, memorable introduction to an unsung ecosystem."
"Bulion stuffs her poems with scientific detail and puts even more into accompanying "science notes." Meganck's cartoons strike sillier notes...balancing all of the information Bulion provides with hefty doses of fun."
"In this ecological poetry collection, Bulion works her own magic, turning potentially dull life science into zany fun.... An amusing way to get the dirt on food chains."
"Educational and highly entertaining...rich with cross-curricular teaching opportunities. Meganck's humorous, digitally rendered cartoon artwork will have readers giggling as they learn.... An excellent find for science fans and teachers alike."
