From Caldecott Honor recipient Steve Jenkins comes the EXTREME ANIMALS series of early readers. TRICKIEST! will focus on the cleverest, most deceptive members of the animal kingdom.
Trickiest! introduces readers to some of the slyest animals on the planet, and the award-winning author and illustrator Steve Jenkins is here to show you what earned them their reputation.
Steve's Extreme Animals reader series explores nature's truly superlative animals with the help of illustrations, infographics, facts, and figures while detailing the astounding abilities of critters as small as a frog or as big as a whale. Each installment focuses on truly amazing and unusual animals, making these nonfiction readers accessible, informative, and fascinating.
"Jenkins’s expert cut- and torn-paper illustrations provide high visual appeal. Clean lines, careful shading, and clearly delineated body parts effectively highlight key features such as the spines of the giant silk moth caterpillar (Deadliest!) and the alligator snapping turtle’s lurelike tongue (Trickiest!). Many visuals significantly enrich a young reader’s learning experience . . . Top-notch nonfiction with high appeal for browsing and learning." –SLJ
