School Library Journal - 10/01/2019 K-Gr 3—Snot otters use their mucus-covered skin to repel infections and predators. Siberian chipmunks rub their fur with the dead flesh of snakes to scare away predators. Facts such as these fill Keating's latest title in the "The World of Weird Animals" series. Combining fascinating animal facts with photographs and amusing illustrations makes for an informative and rather disgusting book that young readers will eagerly snatch from the shelf. The bright colors and large photographs are eye-catching, if not exactly beautiful. Difficult vocabulary words are highlighted and defined in the glossary at the end of the book. A bibliography would have been useful, but young readers won't miss it. VERDICT A first purchase where Keating's other books are popular or animal books are in demand.—Heidi Grange, Summit Elementary School, Smithfield, UT - Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
