"Friendly and approachable, this compendium is sure to create some new favorites in the animal kingdom." --Kirkus Reviews "The point that every animal, no matter how seemingly weak, has 'its own special way of surviving' is effectively made. The narrative also offers discussion-encouraging questions, and the lively painted portraits depict the animals fairly realistically, placing them in simplified natural settings, sometimes with a humorous touch." --Booklist
