Steve Jenkins contributes another artistically wrought, imaginatively conceived look at the natural world. What Do You Do with a Tail Like This? by Jenkins and wife Robin Page, stages a guessing game. Illustrated with Jenkins's trademark cut-paper art, one spread will show animals' tails (or noses, ears, etc.) as text asks variations of the titular question; turn the page, and the whole bodies of the animals are shown as answers are supplied (""If you're a lizard, you break off your tail to get away""; ""If you're a scorpion, your tail can give a nasty sting""). Four pages of illustrated endnotes deliver meaty profiles of the 30 featured creatures.
