Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "One of the first children's science books written by Jenkins, Biggest, Strongest, Fastest (1995), explored superlatives in the animal kingdom. Now he returns to the subject in the colorful and attractively designed Extreme Animals series. Exploring themes such as deadliest and trickiest, the topics are well chosen for primary-grade children, and these science readers have the clear, reliable writing and polished artwork that readers have come to expect of Jenkins. Each one- or two-page presentation introduces a species through a paragraph of text, an eye-catching picture, a fun factoid or two, and a sidebar noting what the animal eats and where it lives. Other helpful features include a small range map and a comparative size indicator, which shows a silhouette of the creature beside that of a man. The lively, distinctive collage illustrations of individual animals show up clearly against the white pages. The 20 animals discussed in Deadliest!include the surprisingly fast-charging hippopotamus, the lethally venomous box jellyfish, and, deadliest of all, the mosquito. An extremely appealing new series for the animal shelves.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2017 Booklist"
