This inviting introduction to animals, created in partnership with the National Wildlife Federation, collects wow-worthy animal feats, focusing on defense methods, foraging, and anatomical extremes. The photo-heavy format introduces dozens of species, highlighting their characteristics in brief, plainspoken captions (“Many animals... eat snow every day in the winter to get water”). No one species gets examined in-depth, with Cusick instead hopscotching across species and habitats to deliver an array of intriguing tidbits about the surprising ways animals feed (“Nectar bats use their hollow, tube-like tongues the way we use soda straws”), survive, and thrive. Available simultaneously: Animals That Make Me Say Ouch! Ages 7–10. (Oct.)
