Rodent Rascals is about different types of rodents. There are 21 different rodents in the book and so many facts that I can’t count. It covers everything from habitat to their abilities. My favorite rodent that I read about was the chipmunk. They have pouches in their cheeks, like giant grocery bags. Chipmunks remind me of when I visit Canada. We met a chipmunk who would come and sit on my lap so I could feed him peanuts. I think that the author and illustrator, Roxie Munro, did a fantastic job with the illustrations. She drew each rodent in their actual size. This really helps you see how big and small some rodents are. Some rodents are so big that the author wouldn’t have been able to draw the whole thing, so she draws the head or part of the body, so we can see their size. The smallest rodent is the pygmy jerboa, and the largest is the capybara. I was really surprised to learn that a capybara was a rodent. They live in large groups in South America and love the water. I would recommend Rodent Rascals to kids who like to learn animals facts and who want to learn more about rodents.
