From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4 The organization of this book leaves a good deal to be desired. The first chapter is clear, explaining briefly how dentition can reveal much about an animal's life style and describing the four main types of mammalian teeth. It's in the descriptions of the specific animals that the confusion begins. The second chapter is entitled "Wolves, Horses, and Chimps," but sandwiched in are cats, giraffes (compared to cows), bears and raccoons! The third, entitled "Elephants, Hippos, and Walruses" (all tusked), also includes the giant anteater (no teeth at all!). "Beavers, Bats, and Whales" stays on course, but "Gators, Snakes, and Sharks" tosses in parrotfish, carp, pike, puffers and barracuda. "In the Days of the Dinosaurs" stays with those beasties, and is followed, thank goodness, by an index. Pencil drawings are profuse but pedestrian. A comparison to Mason's Animal Teeth (Morrow, 1965; o.p.) shows a somewhat better organized, but very personal, book for older readers. Lauber's poor organization takes away some of her bite.
