* .. .An eminently browsable overview with all the clickbait appeal of websites and paperbacks with redeployed content but with some thoughtful implications about animals... Animal-loving kids, sensationalism-loving kids, and facts-loving kids will be surprised to find common ground here.

* Compelling visual presentation makes the information accessible and exciting. Highly recommended for all science collections.

* The intriguing and engaging format of this title is stimulating on a variety of levels, and the approach should appeal to a wide range of students, especially visual learners, something for which educators will be grateful. A brilliantly executed take on a perennially high-interest topic.

* A special treat for all who love animal statistics.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
