Good thing I am not a zombie, as it would have made me very hungry to see the delicious brain in all its glory! Our zombie friend/chef/narrator is the nicest zombie you will ever meet, but you better not even let them smell your brain as it is a very important item for our survival (such as running away from zombies and telling us to get our thumb out of a vampire’s mouth). This introduction to our brain is a treat with some seriously humorous illustrations. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Published: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR) - August 30th, 2022

Good thing I am not a vampire, as learning about blood in McAnulty’s would have made me thirsty! The ins and outs of our blood (while a very thirsty count waits not so patiently for a drink) are presented by a young vampire, who "hearts" blood! But only inside humans. And they have a treat for the count (though spoiler, I would recommend strawberry, as closer to the color needed). The illustrations of Tenney are equally amusing, bright, and informative. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Did you know that a colony of penguins was once located because we could see the results of the guano-made nests from outer space? Everything from the tiny fairy penguin to the large emperor penguin, the kind of foods they eat, their (creepy) mouth structure, the way and why of swimming, to even how we can help protect them is included.

The story of Halley's Comet is told by the comet itself. The voice of the comet is friendly, and the character of the comet willingly covers the highlights of its life. Gladstone makes something we touch, come alive in a whole new way. The science and history of the comet and the world comes together seamlessly. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
