When it comes to animals, the fluffy, the handsome, and the strong get all the attention. But children have every reason to love the critters that scuttle, slither, buzz, and sting. Naturalist and author Diane Lang and artist Lauren Gallegos take children on a guided tour of the animals that do so many good things for us, yet don't get enough love. Through lively, witty rhymes and warm, friendly illustrations, Vulture Verses helps children appreciate and befriend even the scariest critters. That's right, even the vampire bat.
