This lively riff on superheroes, the first in a projected new series of science books, explores the mothering habits of 18 different animal species. . . . For youngsters who like learning about the animal kingdom, this work offers a pleasing variety. . . . For Mother's Day or any day, an appealing take on animal factoids.
--Kirkus Reviews

Lang introduces animal mothers who go above and beyond in raising their progeny. . . Speech balloons permit these cheeky children and moms to remark about the scenes depicted, and formal text is kept minimal, allowing the colorful art and humorous commentary to take center stage.

Informative text and humorous speech-bubble asides spotlight the impressive and surprising work that different maternal species do to support their young--providing food, homes, protection, transport, and valuable instruction. . . . Most of the creatures' efforts have a true wow factor that, combined with comedic commentary throughout, results in a super silly tribute to supermoms.
--Publishers Weekly
