Crabs and cows look straight out at us in Stockdale's characteristically eye-catching illustrations which celebrate each animal presented, both large (cheetahs) and small (lady-bugs and snails). Her rhyming text adds to the energy of the book and reads easily. Back-matter adds additional details and a fun quiz can test the reader's attention. Credit is given to the scientists consulted. A book to please and inform.
