These excellent introductions to some exotic creatures present facts about the bumblebee bat and meerkat in question-and-answer format. Two pages of facts are included at the end, which add to the information for younger students. Lunde works for the American Museum of Natural History, which is also where Wynne works as an illustrator. Wynne's illustrations make these creatures even more intriguing. Although there are no photos of these creatures included, the illustrations give a good sense of proportion and anatomy. It is nice to see a few full-length titles to satisfy curious appetites that might see these species mentioned in other animal titles. Recommended.
