REVIEWS

Praise for Wow! Surprising Facts About Animals

San Francisco Book Review
This book looks at animals from a different perspective – what is strange and unusual and unexpected about some animals. . . . This is the kind of book kids (and adults) will go back to again. It will send youngsters hunting for more information on these fascinating animals, teaching research skills without the children ever being aware they are learning. There is not a dull sentence anywhere in this wonderful compilation. The accompanying artwork is cute and fun with lots of bright colors to draw the eye through the book. The best news is this is the first in a series.
