Review by Susan Stewart

Do you know what the greatest danger to tiger cubs is?

Do you know where they live?

I know the answers now, and they are stuck in my memory.

Bergeron, Quintin and Parent have created a memorable graphic-novel-type universe where basic facts about animals are presented in a visual format suitable for children ages 7-11.

An adult reading along with children will enjoy the references to Québec culture: snowboarding, above-ground pools (Did you know that Québec has the highest number of these of any province in Canada?) and the fact that ketchup will make anything taste OK!

Words that might be new for this age group are written in bold, and there is a glossary at the end of each book.

Of the 47 books in the original Savais-tu? series, 14 have been translated into English.
These include books about porcupines, crows, leeches (yuck!) and Komodo dragons.

Hopefully, there will be more to come in the near future.
