Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6–Dozens of invertebrates with fantastic shapes and bizarre behaviors are featured in these broad surveys. Concise paragraphs of text, buttressed (in most sections) by multiple color photographs, identify the major groups to which the subject animals belong and describe their physical and behavioral characteristics. The books also touch on their natural habitats, diets and feeding habits, defense mechanisms, reproductive methods, and the development of young. Anywhere from one to nine sharp color photographs of representative species complement the texts; most have extended captions that describe distinctive characteristics. Also included are diagrams of major body parts and internal organs and a simple classification chart. All three titles have smoothly written, well-organized texts and a wider scope than most introductions to the subjects. For instance, Gilpin surveys all seven classes of mollusks, while other books aimed at this audience typically focus on the more familiar classes, such as gastropods (slugs and snails) or cephalopods (cuttlefish, squids, and octopuses). And, while Sally Morgan's Sponges and Other Minor Phyla (Raintree, 2004) covers similar material and offers a bit more detail on the classification of some of the same simple animals, the Parker titles describe–and depict–a greater number and variety of invertebrate phyla. With their succinct texts and colorful formats, all three volumes will appeal to students and browsers alike.–Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Library

In 48 pages each of these five volumes from the Animal Classification series manage at least a brief mention and illustration of a full range of both common and obsure invertebrate groups, from sponges to tunicates. The emphasis in each volume is descript --Science Books and Films

To be noted is that this collection is old. I bought a used book, printed in 2006. Because of this, the design and photos look old, even though some of the pictures are great. So my 7 year old was initially not very attracted tot hem. But then we started reading, and her interested just grew and grew and grew. There are so many interesting facts, that one quickly forgets about the minor flaws of design and photography. The level of information is great for 7-12 years old, I believe. We bought this book, along with the one on simple animals and echinoderms; we have learn quite a few things and overall are very happy with them. It would be amazing if these books could be redesign and reprinted.

This is a stunning book, part of a series of `Animal Kingdom Classification'. A `pre-title page' gives credit to impressive content and science advisers. The title page, and each page thereafter, contains excellent, unique and fascinating up-close photography, the likes of which make one want to read the captions (equally interesting and impressive) as well as the text. After reading this book you may well forego a buffet table laden with these `delicacies'! Attractive color coding of boarders and headers, as well as pages where text is sometimes white on black, as well as black on white, unify the layout. The text is large, attractive and varied. Overall, in only 48 pages, this book will satisfy the `impress-me-this-minute" generation. A Table of Contents outlines (each in a two page spread) an Introduction and each Chapter, as well as a Glossary, Index and Further Resources.

i bought this book for my son's birthday. He loves it. It has lots of easy to read information, with many colourful pictures. Solidly constructed. Worth the price that i paid. Excellent source for a school project or just "interesting reading."
