Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Unusual creatures are always a draw, and this title in the Rookie Read-About Science: Strange Animals series will easily impress curious youngsters. It does exactly what a beginner's nonfiction book should do: offer fascinating facts and simple explanations with fantastic illustrations. Short chapters peppered with color photos show off some of the oddest reptiles out there, dividing them into categories of lizard, turtle, snake, and crocodilians. The photos do an excellent job of showing readers the animals' unusual traits and abilities, such as racing across water, like the green basilisk lizard, or squirting blood from its eyes, like the desert horned lizard. Others, such as the tiny stinkpot turtle, are just plain adorable. Captions and labels helpfully turn some pictures into diagrams, ensuring that readers have a clear understanding of points discussed in the main text. Top 5 Facts, reptilian record holders, an illustrated glossary, and even a couple of jokes round out the text while encouraging reader participation. This series finds the right balance between scientific information and accessibility for young readers enthralled by nature's novelties.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2016 Booklist"
