There is not a lot of obvious humor, but from the first page Montgomery will have you laughing and ewwwing (while laughing) while learning about the subject. A casual conversational tone makes this an easy read (from ages 10 to adult). She does not shy away from the details but presents them factually and interestingly. Learn about road pizza (people eat it, yes); how it is being made into art (Mother’s Day gift?); conservation of animals and even how studying roadkill can help humans (a cancer in Tasmanian devils is contagious, what does this mean for humans?) A main issue she makes sure she covers a couple different times is: DO NOT try this at home. Animals can carry diseases, fleas, are messy and much more. Therefore, yes, look but do not touch the next time you find a chicken (deer, turtle, bird, salamander, coyote, fox, rabbit) that did not cross the road. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
