Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The stone-faced gaze of the world's largest rodent greets readers from the cover of this title in the Super Species series. A quick turn to the text reveals that the capybara weighs roughly the same as three beavers and can grow as tall as a standard poodle. After describing its physical appearance, the text offers a glimpse of capybara life, where readers learn that this South and Central American creature loves the water see the close-up photo of its webbed foot and communicates with a range of noises. A final, adorable spread on capybara pups concludes. Youngsters will love poring over the crisp, oversize photos that occupy each long, horizontal two-page spread, and the simple, large-type sentences are ideal for emergent readers. An attractive introduction to the nonfiction format, as well as to a subject guaranteed to fascinate.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2016 Booklist"
