Reviews

School Library Journal - John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, NYC

"These “peeks” take a system-by-system approach to their subjects—pairing informal but pleasantly specific commentary to cartoon-style cutaways and diagrams. Though the illustrations are not consistently to scale, in all but Hood they are formatted sideways for an effective sense of depth. . . .the overall level and accuracy of detail make the series a worthy addition. Good additional choices for science collections." - School Library Journal

Esther Porter

Esther Porter grew up in North Dakota, where she and her best friend had enough small animals to open a zoo. She is the author of a number of science-y books including What's Sprouting in My Trash? A Book about Composting and Sun Power: A Book about Renewable Energy. Her only animals now are Chopstick the angry cat, Georgie the confused cat, and Samantha Turkey Porter the slobbery pup.
