How to Swallow a Pig: Step-by-Step Advice from the Animal Kingdom

Steve Jenkins and Robin Page. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $17.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-544-31365-1
Jenkins and Page are back with a tongue-in-cheek “how to” guide to hunting, building, and protecting oneself like more than a dozen animals. Numbered instructions, accompanied by Jenkins’s always excellent paper collages, demonstrate how to repel insects like a capuchin monkey, catch a meal like a crocodile (“When an egret lands nearby to pick up one of your sticks, you know what to do”), or defend oneself like an armadillo. Beneath the irreverent tone, there’s ample information about the animals’ traits and behavior (and even more in an appendix), adding up to a highly enjoyable mix of science and humor. Ages 6–9.
