Animal Body Part Regenerators: Growing New Heads, Tails, and Legs (Amazing Animal Defenses) Library Binding – September 1, 2008
From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4–Broader in focus than the Gross-Out Defenses series, this set groups animals by type of defensive (and sometimes offensive) behavior or capability. Combat, for instance, opens with a look at snakes and monarch butterflies, closes with marine ink squirters and the ever-popular hagfish, and in between recounts the unfortunate consequences of bothering such animals as stink bugs and the slow loris (It produces a poison that smells like stinky gym socks). The close-up photos are frequent and well chosen, and accompanied by clear, simply phrased texts, which are more detailed than average and take up most or all of the space on each page. An unusual feature is each volume's closing discussion of human equivalents, such as what spies do in Mimics, and how Kevlar works in Armor.
