"Another amazing work by a master illustrator." SLJ Starred 10/2007 School Library Journal, Starred

It's difficult to imagine a science topic better suited to picture-book form than this one, which offers a pageant of the most stunning, vividly hued creatures on the planet. ...From the pink fairy armadillo to the purple deep-sea dragonfish, readers will be fascinated by the panoply of critters that often seem the stuff of fairy lore, and educators will applaud the clever concept of presenting survivaladaptations as a biological fashion show.
Booklist, ALA

Color becomes the organizing factor in this new exploration of the quirks of the animal world. Jenkins's design, always striking, reaches the heights of inspiration with this offering... guaranteed to be a browser's delight Kirkus Reviews

The book's real highlight, though, is Jenkins's cut-paper collage: his animals are dazzling -- vibrantly colored and detailed. For each of the featured animals, further information -- size, habitat, and diet, among other facts -- is provided in the end matter. There Jenkins also answers questions like "How is animal color created?" That's a godsend, because it's definitely the sort of thing curious young readers will ask" Horn Book

"Jenkins blends his trademark collage illustrations with snappy facts." The Washington Post 12/08/07 The Washington Post
