School Library Journal - 04/01/2020 Gr 2–5—Unusual animals are the draw in this series. While the unique features of each creature are highlighted (such as the axolotl's regenerative abilities and the tusk of the narwhal), coverage extends to more general information about behaviors, physical characteristics, and life cycles. A couple of short paragraphs per spread provide a good variety of factual material, though it does not always flow smoothly. Several inset text boxes provide well-chosen data. Most spreads include two half-page photographs; though not large, the images complement the text effectively. Captions highlight relevant visual content. A range map and a life cycle chart are also useful features. Four QR codes and a website link offer a video, activities, and further information. VERDICT Solid profiles of animals that cannot always be found in children's collections. - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
