Animals Upside Down: A Pull, Pop, Lift & Learn Book!

Steve Jenkins and Robin Page. Houghton Mifflin, $24.99 (24p) ISBN 978-0-547-34127-9
Leave it to Jenkins and Page to find another novel take on the animal kingdom—using tabs, wheels, and pop-ups, they examine numerous reasons that more than two dozen animals turn themselves upside down or stick their tails in the air. Hanging from its long, scaly tail, a pangolin swings (via tab) to reach a termite nest; a flamingo “feeds with its head turned upside down,” using its beak as a filter; and a sparrow hawk can flip over midflight to grab its prey. Jenkins’s cut/torn-paper collages show his customary skill and precision, and the pages fairly burst with intriguing details of unusual animal behavior. Expect kids to flip. Ages 4–8. (Aug.)
