From School Library Journal
Grade 4-6-- Real animals--some long extinct, some living--are the stars here; oddly shaped bodies, appendages, and/or features qualify them as Strange Creatures . Even aficionados of prehistoric beasts will find several they have never heard of before. Peters explains the purposes, known or assumed, of the spectacular jaws, claws, fins, and tails. The juxtaposition of extinct and equally bizarre living creatures is a plus. Only one sentence is troubling, in reference to female sea horses and their ilk, who apparently "stand by as the males produce the young." As the females previously deposited eggs into a stomach sack on the males' bodies, they do have something to do with the birth process. The rest of the information is accurate, and the lavish, oversized, full-color pictures will help insure the book's constant use. Each animal's size is noted; large ones are shown with an attractive cast of multiethnic children for comparative purposes. For reports as well as for browsing, this title provides readers with an enjoyable introduction to some extraordinary creatures. --Carla Kozak, San Francisco Public Library
