From Booklist:

By taking an overview approach to the problem of invasive species, this entry in the Protecting Our Planet series provides an ideal starting point for deeper investigation—and, best of all, introduces an entire rogue’s gallery of freaky flora and fauna. The format is simple: each two-page chapter has a picture of the offending life-form on the left, with a couple paragraphs’ worth of intelligent info on the right. Immediately, Metz broadens perceptions of invasive species by listing camels as invasive to Australia. The land Down Under is also victim to rabbits: 24 frisky bunnies were let loose there in 1859, and by 1926, they numbered around 10 billion. Along with rats (they stowed aboard ships from India) and the 20-foot pythons plaguing Florida, plants are taken to task, too, including kudzu—“the vine that ate the South.” Boxes offer fast facts (the U.S. banned African land snails for spreading disease to humans), and the volume closes with information not only on catching and killing invasive species but how to protect native species as well. Grades 3-5. --Daniel Kraus
