Praise For Trickiest!: 19 Sneaky Animals (Extreme Animals)

"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
