Layton's...crystal-clear diagrams, diverting strip panels, and spirited spot art all interpret biology in their own deliciously weird way. Davies is the best thing to happen to biology since the invention of the filmstrip, and kids who thought they'd never care about a science precept will be delighted to acquire killjoy information to spout during sci-fi horror movies. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
