Reviews

"Jenkins, this time in collaboration with his wife, has created yet another eye-opening book." -- School Library Journal (starred review)"This array of wide eyes and open mouths will definitely have viewers responding with wide eyes and open mouths of their own." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"This is a striking, thoughtfully created book with intriguing facts made more memorable through dynamic art." -- Booklist (starred review)"Jenkin's cut-paper collage illustrations are, as usual, ingenious and remarkable in their clarity, their several components neatly articulating the anatomy of their subjects." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"Steve Jenkins contributes another artistically wrought, imaginatively conceived look at the natural world." -- Publishers Weekly

Steve Jenkins contributes another artistically wrought, imaginatively conceived look at the natural world. What Do You Do with a Tail Like This? by Jenkins and wife Robin Page, stages a guessing game. Illustrated with Jenkins's trademark cut-paper art, one spread will show animals' tails (or noses, ears, etc.) as text asks variations of the titular question; turn the page, and the whole bodies of the animals are shown as answers are supplied ("If you're a lizard, you break off your tail to get away"; "If you're a scorpion, your tail can give a nasty sting"). Four pages of illustrated endnotes deliver meaty profiles of the 30 featured creatures. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
