“Playful chapter titles and occasional interjections like “yikes” and wow!” create a lighthearted feel in these animal profiles, but there’s also plenty of useful, well-organized information. VERDICT: Well-rounded overviews with a light touch that might draw more reluctant readers.” –School Library Journal review of Library of Awesome Animals
