Cleverly written to entice young readers, Animal Snoops looks at the scientific world of animals. From a robin's sneaky listening skills helping him steal away a mate to grey squirrels' outsmarting rival jays for food, animals are detectives in their own habitats. Animal Snoops is filled with colourful animal photographs and amusing illustrations, and the pictures will draw in the young reader. The book makes a fun and educational addition to any classroom. While Animal Snoops is a great resource for teachers, stronger readers will enjoy the fascinating facts this book has to offer. Animal Snoops is organized into six chapters which are set up to look like spy case files. The book also includes two mini-stories, one at the beginning and one at the end of the book. The book concludes with further reading suggestions, a bibliography, index, photo credits and acknowledgments. Peter Christie, the author, has been fascinated by unusual animal habits and has written other animal fact books as well as articles for magazines and newspapers.
