Reviews

* "Munro's animals-particularly her impossibly cute guinea pig-strongly exude shaggy, button-eyed appeal. Her subjects may come across as eye candy, but they are drawn with naturalistic exactitude, and in her accompanying descriptive comments, she often relates certain visible features to distinctive habitats and behaviors. . . . 'Humans are lucky to have rodents,' Munro argues...and makes her case with equal warmth to hearts and minds."-Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

* "Writing with warmth and enthusiasm, Munro celebrates the biodiversity of rodents. . . . Munro blends naturalism with a hint of personality for each rodent, accentuating the positive attributes of an underappreciated group of animals."-Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Munro's joyful ode to rodents is a refreshing take on these often maligned creatures. . . . The artwork, created with India ink and colored acrylic inks on paper, is a pleasure to pore over. Illustrations are drawn to scale and skillfully communicate the rodents' physical appearance and hint at their temperament, resulting in an inviting and accurate work. The back matter goes into greater depth for each subject, providing scientific names, average sizes, and more. Even the most resistant of readers will fall in love with these rascally rodents. A fine selection for animal collections."-School Library Journal

* "Each creature is beautifully illustrated in actual size, with soft brushstrokes providing excellent details of the rodents' fur and hair, nails, and teeth. . . . The crisp, clear text will make it easy for readers to follow along, with the names of each rodent presented in large colorful text and italicized words defined in a glossary. Further detailed informative paragraphs about each featured rodent follow the main illustrated pages, along with a glossary, resources, a list of related websites for readers to explore, and an index. A fun, unique, and informative addition to all children's nonfiction collections."-Booklist, Starred Review
