This new book is a fun peek into the variety of animal tails. There’s so much cool information, like how squirrels use their tails as umbrellas and kangaroos use their tails to balance. Caterpillar tails can even frighten off predators by confusing them. And some lizards can grow brand new tails if their tail is broken off! Bright color photographs accompany brief chapters grouped by scaly tails, balancing tails, talking tails, stinging tails, wagging tails and more. There are additional facts for each category about lots of unusual animals and insects. Find your favorite animal in the index. Recommended for middle elementary students.
