The author points out that it's easy to admire animals that are big and fast, or lean and graceful. But what might seem like a weakness is actually a strength. Like for the smaller animals, it's easy for them to hide from predators in tiny places. There's also a section More About the underdogs in the back that gives even more fun facts about these intriguing creatures.
Final Verdict: In PIPSQUEAKS, SLOWPOKES, and SQUEAKERS the author uses humor to introduce these animals that many children might not know about. I know I didn't know them and my daughter enjoyed the pictures in this one. This book is perfect for children who love animals but are looking for something different than your typical animal book you find on the shelves.
