School Library Journal - 04/01/2022 Gr 5–8—These fact-filled titles are a treat for older readers in search of fun animal information. Each book features several dozen brief animal profiles, grouped by continent. Most spreads include a full page focused on a single creature, alongside briefer passages on three or four other animals that are each accompanied by at least one photograph. World's Most Extreme Animals highlights a uniquely superlative characteristic of each featured animal, such as the klipspringer's jumping ability. Deadly Animals focuses on the animals' dangerous qualities and how they utilize them in the wild. World's Most Freaky Animals examines especially unusual physical features and behaviors. The tone necessarily shifts from fun to dire with World's Most Endangered Animals, which looks at critically endangered species, including the causes for their scarcity and, in some cases, conservation efforts. VERDICT A wealth of facts on a wide array of species makes this a strong set for browsers. - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
