KIRKUS REVIEW

 Fifty appealing mammals, illustrated in meticulous detail. The author's soft watercolors portray specialized feet, paws, teeth, and skulls and also include whole animal studies, family groups, burrows and nests, diet, and range for the familiar rabbit, squirrel, mouse, and rat--as well as for such specialized and unusual creatures as the platypus, loris, meerkat, wombat, and numbat. Animals are grouped by family; body size and brief information on habitats are given, but scientific names are not. Unusually attractive: a charming feast for the nature enthusiast. Glossary; no index. (Nonfiction. 7-12)
