This book goes from animal to animal talking about what makes them unusual from other more famous animals. All these animals have an aspect (trait) that some people may see as negative or boring but the book shares why these traits actually help them survive. I really enjoy books like this because it can feel so repetitive reading about the same animals and their crazy traits. I would use this book when teaching a unit on animal traits and how those traits help them live. I could see myself using the animals from this book as prompts for a project on traits and how they help the animal live. ( )

Factual story of animals interesting animals that are considered underdogs of the animal kingdom. This book explains that what we might think is not a good trait is most definitely a wonderful trait to have. Beautiful illustrations help children want to know more about these animals. A must have for any child who likes all animals. ( )

PIPSQUEAKS, SLOWPOKES, AND STINKERS by Melissa Stewart celebrates animal underdogs.

This humorous, nonfiction picture book features often overlooked animals like frogs, lizards, and rats. Using an appealing, conversational style, the author draws attention to lesser-known creatures from around the world. Questions and fascinating examples maintain reader interest throughout. The book concludes with additional information about each creature.

Librarians will find this informational picture book to be an unusual way to jumpstart animal inquiries. Ask youth to select an “unsung underdog” to explore. What special characteristic can we celebrate?

Stewart steps away from popular, big-name animals to take a look at some unusual creatures - and their unique abilities.

Forget about elephants and cheetahs - what do you know about the Etruscan pygmy shrew? The Amau frog? How about a stinky hoatzin or reeking zorilla? Why is an okapi so shy and a bat so lazy? Stewart takes each of these animals, as well as walruses, naked mole rats, western fence lizards, and more and shows how their stinky smells, tiny size, weird diets, and sleep habits help them survive and thrive.

Back matter includes thumbnail illustrations of each animal with additional information on their habits and abilities. The final page has a brief list of sources and a dedication to children who are bullied. Laberis' friendly illustrations add a cartoon flavor to the various creatures while still capturing their unique looks and behavior. Plump gray koalas lounge on tree branches, a naked mole rat tries on a furry coat, and a panicked group of predators flee in humorous shock from the stench of the hoatzin and zorilla. Readers will want to look carefully to discover the okapi blending into the forest, well-hidden from a prowling leopard, and the western fence lizard flies comically off its branch.

Verdict: This cute book not only introduces kids to an unusual set of animals, it also gently points the lesson that sometimes the smallest, weakest, and weirdest of us all have hidden strengths! Recommended for storytime read-alouds and class discussions.
