KIRKUS REVIEW

The ghoulies, the ghosties, the long-legged beasties did not die with Robert Burns' shivery description of them. The procession of fearsome, bizarre and freakish animals which survive to our present stage of evolution are paraded here: hyenas, jackals, chameleons, electric cels, crocodiles and vampire bats are described and pictured. On the North American continent, the most destructive animal is the wolverine. The extraordinary species which inhabit our world make gripping reading --and occasionally terrifying, too.
