About this title

Synopsis:

Truth is stranger than fiction, right? Find out where you can uncover real-life vampires and zombies. Learn about crazy mutations, and discover animals with amazing super powers. Pop culture tie-ins and freaky facts hook readers into learning about animal and plant science. They may seem like stories from comic books, but you might find these freaky plants and animals in your own backyard. This photo-illustrated book for elementary readers describes animals that drink the blood of other animals and even people. Explains how these "vampire" animals find their hosts and which ones usually spread diseases when they feed on human blood.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-4-This series draws parallels among animals and superheroes and monsters, with limited success. A few sentences of text, accompanied by a photograph, explore unusual features or behaviors. Some connections, such as the blood-sucking practices of mosquitoes and vampire bats, fit neatly. Others are more tenuous, such as when the platypus's sixth sense is compared to Spider-Man's. At times analogies are stretched to the point of inaccuracy: a honey badger's skin is not "as tough as Iron Man's armor." Jumping quickly from one animal to the next results in some lack of clarity. Though many photographs are visually impressive, several are standard full-body photos that don't highlight the animal's featured ability. Added facts appear in a question-and-answer format at the bottom of some spreads. VERDICT There are plenty of fascinating bits of animal information throughout the series, particularly in Zombies and Super Powers, but the sometimes scattered presentation limits its general usefulness.α(c) Copyright 2011.
