Kindergarten-Grade 4-Prickly Pete is an anthropomorphic packrat that helps readers explore the desert, determining which pieces of information are true. A question about a plant or animal at the bottom of each spread invites a fact-or-fallacy response. Are javelinas wild desert pigs? Do stink bugs stink? Can a dead rattlesnake bite? After turning the page, readers learn the answer and a little information about the topic. The final spread gives the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum's Web site and encourages readers to visit it to learn more about the 11 featured plants and animals. The site displays illustrations from the book as well as links to provide a plethora of information on each subject. The conversational text, in concert with its brightly colored, full-page illustrations, will capture the attention of readers with its playful blend of information and silliness and, along the way, dispel fallacies about the desert.
