Library Journal Review

In this small book, Hewitt tells how to choose and then care for a variety of creatures most people wouldn't even consider when searching for the perfect companion. From centipedes (don't handle them--they're poisonous; and don't try to keep more than one--they'll eat each other) to the handsome red tomato frog and the blue-tongued skink, Hewitt describes the living conditions and food required. Along with several species of frogs and five additional invertebrates, he includes a number of salamanders, lizards, snakes, and turtles. Hewitt's advice is sound, though a little sparse; however, he does emphasize the ethical and legal responsibilities involved in keeping unusual animals. The text is clear and simple, but not childish, which makes this book appropriate for adults as well as younger readers.-- Katharine Galloway Garstka, Intergraph Corp., Huntsville, Ala.
