& Observer * .. .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. --Bulletin * Compelling visual presentation makes the information accessible and exciting. Highly recommended for all science collections. --School Library Journal, STARRED review* 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. --Booklist, STARRED review * A special treat for all who love animal statistics. --Kirkus, STARRED review Steve Jenkins's work... is characterized by exquisite cut- and torn-paper collages, a particular affinity for zoology, a plethora of pithy facts and trivia, and an elegant design aesthetic that allows readers to navigate information-heavy pages without becoming confused or disoriented. --Horn Book
