KIRKUS REVIEW

By a Fellow of the London Zoological Society -- this delightfully informal and authoritative book is a treasure for every child who loves animals. Most of the text is devoted to descriptions of animal oddities from everywhere:-eating, hunting, locomotion, building, fighting, protection and other living habits; and to glimpses of the largest, smallest, and ""most personable"" animals. However, there are also behind-the-scene peaks at zoos and their special problems, chapters on instincts, rearing habits, conservation movements, and hints for starting animal collections at home and at school. Throughout the author conveys his devotion to the subject and a comradely pleasure in sharing his enthusiasm.
