Salamander, Frog, and Polliwog: What Is an Amphibian?

Out of stock
Author Brian P. Cleary and illustrator Martin Goneau are back, this time with a guide to amphibians that will appeal to factoid lovers. In their inimitable, humorous rhyming text and cartoon illustrations, they straightforwardly categorize amphibians (“All of them have backbones, / and they have no scales or fur. / Plus, they’re cold-blooded / which affects their temperature.”) before delving into more esoteric details, such as what amphibian eggs are made of and what happens to some salamanders’ tails when they’re near an enemy. A final spread recaps the book’s most important information, and a publisher’s link leads to more resources.
