Reviews

K-Gr 2‘Large, clear print; fascinating facts; and beautiful, detailed, cut-paper collages make this excellent title a delight. One main fact is presented per spread about each of 14 animals, e.g., ``The Etruscan shrew, the world's smallest mammal, could sleep in a teaspoon.'' Two more relevant facts are given in smaller print. Silhouette drawings show comparative sizes‘the blue whale is shown next to an adult human. The realistic, inventive, textured illustrations, mostly double spreads, flow smoothly from page to page. A helpful chart at the end contains further information about each creature, such as diet and habitat. An all-round superlative effort.‘Jan Shepherd Ross, Dixie Elementary Magnet School, Lexington, KY

"Here's proof that power isn't just about size and that science can be a lot of fun." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review
