Reviews

NSTA

“In summary, the book has many excellent possibilities for use. It could be an easy read for a child, a great read-aloud for teachers to supplement a unit of study, an entertaining book to read around Halloween time, and/or a useful book for a research report for an early childhood reader.” —NSTA

School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

“These easy readers introduce distinctly different animals (some, such as pigeons, prairie dogs, and bats, are united in their ‘perceived pest’ status) in a fun way.” —School Library Journal
