Mitton's tidily rhyming texts points out that "Black bears are good at climing/Just see how well they do./These bears are fetching insects/and pinecone nuts to chew" and that "A giant squid looks scary. . . ." Parker's illustrations give quick impressions of moose and gulper eels.
[T]he rhymes can be quite clever and awfully amusing . . . cheerful ink-and-watercolor scenes [make] this ripe for point-and-find workouts. . . . [A] terrific choice for gearing up for a zoo trip, or just for children to meet a few unusual new animals from the comfort of home.
