". . . Bredeson does a fine job of bringing these often fantastical creatures down to earth . . . the text works in concert with the photos . . ."

Booklist, October 1, 2009

"Another feature which is ideal for the young reader is a pronunciation guide for the new vocabulary . . . This book is a perfect choice for the elementary library as well as for the classroom library as it will entice young readers to read and learn at the same time!"

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, September 2009

"The close-up photographs make this book an eye catcher."

Highlands Regional Library Cooperative, February 10, 2010

"Placing the glossary at the beginning of the book is unusual, excellent, and helpful."

Eastern Washington Book Review Council

"The focus is on the creep factor, and it is successfully addressed."

Highlands Regional Library Cooperative, December 18, 2009

"This title will appeal to young readers who like the yuck factor . . . this book offers an engaging way to introduce students to science and supports the national science education standards."

Children's Literature

"Kids love strange creatures and this series has plenty of strange creatures . . . The photographs are stunning and show these creatures in their elements. The series would be an appropriate support to classroom science lessons about animal adaptations."
