School Library Journal Review of Weirder and Cuter

With a few sentences per page and a variety of well-chosen photos, these books introduce animals that will be new to many readers. Children’s books on axolotls, snub-nosed monkeys, and Polish chickens are particularly hard to find. The text provides general data on physiology, behavior, and life cycles while also highlighting unique features, such as the platypus’s hunting techniques and the healing ability of the axolotl. Related species are noted and sometimes pictured, and there are images and brief descriptions of more “weird animals” at the end of each book. Visual support is effective: each book opens with an impressive two-page photograph; subsequent pages include large pictures, inset images, and size comparison diagrams, with captions and labels included where needed. VERDICT: Strong appeal for curious kids interested in unusual creatures and to fill subject holes in more comprehensive animal collections.
