" If a crocodile can live in harmony with a bird pecking around its mouth, why can't the rest of us just get along? Fun informational text about symbiosis. " said.

" This is a very interesting book about the fascinating and amazing ways animals have found to live together and help each other. " said.

" This is a fantastic book showing children how these animals can get along with each other. Symbioses is a huge part of our ecosystems. " said.

" The cut-paper collage illustrations are laid out in comic-like panels, a layout that I found very appealing. And it's amazing how much information the authors were able to cram into a slim book (without it being overwhelming). Sections at the back of the book give additional information about symbiotic relationships and about the animals pictured (such as where they live, what they eat, etc.).Blogged - http://www.abbythelibrarian.com/2010/...

" I don’t remember when I first learned that certain animals who would ordinarily be enemies have evolved to help each other, perhaps when I first read an old picture book titled Bill and Pete by Tomi DePaola about an alligator and his “trusty toothbrush”, otherwise known as a plover. This book is crammed with example after example of those unlikely pairings. Arranged in cells, rather like a comic, using the narrative style to relay the information. " said.

"Did you know that giraffes have a lasting friendship with oxpeckers? They do! An annoying pest that torments giraffes and other savanna animals is a favorite meal for oxpeckers. Oxpeckers even sing during their meal breaks while hitching a ride on the giraffe and other animals.

Animals know how to make unlikely friends and this non-fiction picture books shows you just which animals have these unlikely friendships and why.

Written and illustrated by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page. Published by Houghton Mifflin Books for Children.
