This is the cover of a book that Chana Stiefel wrote for kids! I won a copy of “Animal Zombies” from Maria Marshall’s blog called The Picture Book Buzz. Here is a link where you can read her interview with Chana. https://www.mariacmarshall.com/single-post/2018/08/24/The-Picture-Book-Buzz—Interview-with-Chana-Stiefel I hope you enjoy it. You can find more links to Chana’s various pages at the end of this written interview.
When I won this book, I told Chana and Maria I would do a review of it on my blog. I read it last month, but just hadn’t made the time to do that until now. But we all know how much stuff I juggle around and how easily distracted I can get! 😉
Here is what I wrote for a review on Goodreads:
” ‘Animal Zombies!’ is a fantastic book! It is a soft-covered National Geographic magazine for kids. The photos are very close-up and personal! There are facts about bloodsuckers and various deep sea creatures your kids may never have heard of. There are also several stories about different scientists who do fascinating research. (And I might add it is over 90 pages long!)
I wish this had come out when my kids were little. If you have children who love to read about “gross” things some creatures do, your kids will love this book!
This book can make you feel squeamishly excited to learn.”
So there you have it! It really is fascinating information. If you have children or grandchildren, you can get buy it for someone special at Amazon.com.
Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

Yeah it is. We already have a mutual friend who wants to do it with us! You have a wonderful weekend, too, Janet! xx
Sorry. I posted this reply to the wrong post! Thank God it’s Friday!
Ah, the blood suckers, those are the ones that get me. The Reduviidae triatoma protracta is prevalent in our neck of the woods, commonly known as the Kissing Bug. Yuck! They leave a track of bites in a straight line as you sleep and if you’re allergic to the enzymes in they use to numb the bite, you can be in trouble. I know they’re in your neck of the woods as well, although (being nocturnal) they are seldom if ever seen. I’ll have to look into the book, it sounds interesting!
