Praise for Kingfisher Readers L2: Fur and Feathers

“. . . the book is chock full of good, solid scientific facts. Kids will have no idea they are learning while they are reading this fun book. The photographs throughout are crisp, clear close-ups of many amazingly beautiful animals. . . . Animals from porcupines to hamsters and birds from flamingos to peacocks populate this treasury of charming critters.” —San Francisco Book Review -
