review 1: Slime, bone claws, poisonous pustules, blasting poop, sticky vomit, streaming blood.These are some of the tactics featured that these curious prey animals utilize. A wonderful way to get kids interested in different animals, biodiversity and predator-prey relationships. With bright, colorful pictures and quick, gross descriptions, kids from the ages of 5-12 will love this. The gross-ness is backed up with simple, scientific facts and the cool jobs that go with it. Even one plant is featured. A great book for children who are interested in animals and nature. This book was received for free in return for an honest review.
review 2: From a librarian perspective, I have students that will LOVE this book. It has awesome pictures and a definite "survival of the
... more fittest" tone that will appeal to the tough and scientific minded. For another opinion, I handed this to my third grade son because he loves animals. He read it voraciously (he reads at a higher level than 3rd grade). I asked him what he liked best about this and he said it was cool to learn about all the different animal defense and proceeded to give me a five minute description of the different types he learned. This is going right on my to-order list for my library! less
