This is a great book for young readers. The format is a series of questions and answers. It is fast-paced but informative and accompanied by scientifically correct illustrations.

The author works for the American Museum of Natural History and has traveled all over the world studying mammals. This is his first book for children.

The Illustrator also works at the American Museum of Natural History and she has won awards for her scientific illustrations.
