Shaheen Bilgrami. Pinwheel Publishing, $12.95 (12pp) ISBN 978-1-4027-0820-6
Two oversize board books with pull tabs in the Curious Creatures series by Shaheen Bilgrami, illus. by Sally Chambers and Patricia Rati , take readers on a tour of exotic habitats. Dinosaur Rumble depicts the prehistoric creatures running and hiding when they hear ""the loud one"" coming (the ""T-rex,"" shown on the final page; with a pull of the tab, dino fans can view its terrible teeth). In Icy Antics, youngsters meet penguins, seals, polar bears and more as they shiver their way through day-to-day life.
