review 1: This is a wonderfully funny creative non fiction book. Words and illustrations work together (as they should) to create a book that both children and adults will enjoy. I must admit to being surprised that this book made it to publication because its main premise is as a spoof of an adult's book - how do children get the joke?

However, I think if the author wanted this to serve as factual non-fiction, available for students doing reasearch, she should have included a few real pictures instead of all illustrations. Cute, but there are several other books on this particular subject that would be better buys for a teacher or librarian. less
