Synopsis

How to Swallow a Pig by Robin Page

With step-by-step instructions, readers learn about specific behaviours; how to catch thousands of fish like a humpback whale or how to sew up a nest like a tailorbird. This fascinating and fun illustrated nonfiction melds science, art, biology, and the environment together in a detailed and well-researched book about animals who live and survive in our world today.

Reviews

* -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

...adding up to a highly enjoyable mix of science and humor.--Publishers Weekly, starred review
