Short and fuzzy, long and scaled: no matter their size and shape, tails aren't just hanging around—they’re useful! This fun, informative book invites readers to guess the owner of nine tails, and then turn the page to see the animal and its tail in action.

Praise for Who Has This Tail?

"The concise information does a nice job of demonstrating the many different functions a tail can serve–a gerbil uses it for balance, while an Arctic fox uses it to stay warm. The book closes with a summarizing gatefold matching all the animals with their tails" -- School Library Journal

Praise for Who Has These Feet?

“Brooks’ watercolor scenes, which ably highlight both adaptation and environment, will perform well for individual readers and small class groups.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Brooks’s naturalistic yet affable animals will likely inspire readers to take a closer look at their own feet.” —Publishers Weekly

“The simple text, the colorful illustrations, and the guessing game combine to make this an engaging picture book for reading aloud.” —Booklist

“Young animal fans will find much to enjoy and are sure to ask for multiple readings.” —Kirkus Reviews
