Horn Book Review

This easy reader describes the way animals use their whiskers to hunt, hide, feel conditions in their habitat, and even express affection to their young. The animal selection is curiously weighted toward marine mammals, and the author sometimes exaggerates or disregards other facts in order to make a point. The text is illustrated with undistinguished color drawings. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
