Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2014 August)

Gr 5–8—Stewart continues with a topic near and dear to devotees of the 590s, once more providing both fascinating and well-written facts and some truly arresting images. Scientific material on each species is offered, along with pop cultural and historical information. Fans of previous books in this series, such as Sea Lions and Piranhas (both of which SLJ called "remarkable for their clear information and exceptional photography") and Bats, Crocodiles, and Killer Whales will flock to these new entries. Thorough in scope and elegant in design, these stellar titles will attract the browser and the report writer alike.
