Curious Critters

Foreword Review — Spring 2012

These engaging close-up photographs of eighteen animals will make children and adults grin and quiver simultaneously. Each page or spread reveals a new creature, including a fox snake, an American bullfrog, an Eastern screech owl, an opossum, and a fuchsia-colored katydid. Bios offer just the right amount of background: a jumping spider can see in eight directions at the same time—watch out! The author/photographer is an educator who specializes in narrative theory. All ages.
