Praise for Alien Invaders

"In a clear, informal text, illustrated with handsome color paintings, this intriguing science book discusses particular plants, animals, bacteria, and viruses that humans have, deliberately or accidentally, introduced to a new habitat." - Booklist

"The large, vibrant, colourful illustrations by veteran Toronto artist Mark Thurman do an excellent job of bringing the text to life. As well, there's a superb map of Earth, annotated with descriptions of how species travel....excellent reading for any young person looking for a unique perspective on environmental disasters, and contains lots of new information." - Quill & Quire

"The concluding chapters give further perspective on the impact of these species and what people are doing and can do to control them. The background on each double-page chapter is a full-bleed color painting that includes an illustration of the invader....the material is accessible and will be useful for young researchers." - School Library Journal
