An NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Book for Students

"Animal lovers will be sure to find amazing new facts on every page. . . This is an excellent addition to children's nonfiction collections." -- Booklist

"A rollicking ride through the wonderful world of animal symbiosis. In this remarkable book, Macken Murphy brings us a science lesson wrapped up in lots of fun." -- Children's Book of the Week, Press Association

"A beautifully, brightly illustrated book about symbiosis... presents a nice mix of the scientifically interesting and the downright disgusting that should help to keep children engaged for a decent amount of time -- for example, we particularly enjoyed reading about head lice (after having had first-hand experience of them recently), vampire finches feasting on Nazca boobies and woolly bats pooing in pitcher plants." -- Nature
