Reviews

"Move over, Spider-Man. . . . Abundant photographs and a lively narrative make the topic accessible and almost lighthearted, and Heos lays groundwork for readers with a basic introduction to DNA and gene theory."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A complex, controversial topic, positively presented."
--School Library Journal

"Clear focus, careful explanations with occasional repetition of denser information, and a wealth of color photographs make this title inviting and accessible. . . and the kissin'-cute goats should entice quite a few readers to explore this project further."
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
