Farndon, John. Illustrated by Cristina Portolano. Amazing Land Animals. (Animal Bests series) Hungry Tomato/Lerner, 2016. $7.99. 32p. ISBN 9781512411690. Ages 8-13. P8 Q8

The illustrations are connected to the content with lines and arrows, but the smaller font and fewer photographs may make it more difficult for younger readers to track. The use of both standard and metric measurements is helpful. Included are a table of contents and index.

Verdict: People interested in animals will enjoy the book, and the index makes it useful for researching specific animals would love this book.
