Gr 3-5-The superpowers of these animals range from a hummingbird's speed to a dung beetle's strength. Sometimes a volume's focus is tight (e.g., Wood Frogs examines the amphibian's survival ability with some detail) and sometimes it's broader (e.g., the chewing power referenced in Rats is just one of many general characteristics covered). Though occasionally the writing is vague, the texts are lively, engaging, and filled with intriguing facts. Page layouts include clear photos of various sizes accompanied by the main paragraphs set in boxes and extra facts in spiked word balloons. The spreads provide plenty of information and visuals and usually avoid a cluttered look. Bearport's "Animals with Super Powers" series does a solid job with a similar theme, but with its focus on one animal per book and effectively complementary visuals and text, this set will fill needs for many collections. α(c) Copyright 2013.
