Praise For…


* "Jenkins and Page present another fascinating, fun, and attractive look at the natural world." School Library Journal, starred review   "Youngsters who glory in learning animal facts will be thrilled; for those who enjoy pretending, there are inviting opportunities for imitation. Readers and listeners alike will eat this one up." Kirkus   * "Colorful, precise, and often striking against the white pages, the cut-paper collage illustrations fulfill their purpose beautifully. Fascinating facts presented with droll wit—a winning combination." Booklist, starred review   * "Numbered instructions, accompanied by Jenkins’s always excellent paper collages, demonstrate how to repel insects like a capuchin monkey, catch a meal like a crocodile, or defend oneself like an armadillo. Beneath the irreverent tone, there’s ample information about the animals’ traits and behavior...adding up to a highly enjoyable mix of science and humor. Publishers Weekly, starred review    —
