Grade 3 Up-- This oversized, fascinating browsing item is along the lines of a giant natural science smorgasbord. Of little use for project work or research assignments because of its "grab-bag" composition, it is a jam-packed compendium of oddities, facts, and figures about the animal world, including a few mentions of humankind, but dealing in the main with birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and insects. Each chapter is made up of a cluster of questions related to a particular branch of the animal world, e.g., "What is the difference between horns and antlers?," "How big is a giant earthworm?," or "What is a monotreme?," each answered in a brief paragraph immediately below the question and frequently accompanied by a full-color illustration. The general effect is similar to that of a junior illustrated encyclopedia: bright, readable, and very much to the point. A further section of questions, without illustration, is arranged not by animal type but under the six categories of questions in dicated. A collection of disconnected miscellanea, this book provides no avenue for systematic research, but it will entertain and suggest areas of interest to readers intrigued by curiosities and wonders. --Joan McGrath, Education Centre Library, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
