Secret of the Singing Mice . . . and More!

Series: Animal Secrets Revealed!

By Ana María Rodríguez

Scientists studying lab mice have discovered that this little rodent has something in common with people—particularly when males are looking for a date. Meanwhile, in the country of Chile, scientists have uncovered that the little furry degu has eyes that perceive what people would never see. Ground squirrels can communicate with each other very loudly, but sometimes they whisper . . . what are they saying? Then learn how the bizarre-looking star-nose mole uses its nose underwater in a way scientists never believed possible. Finally, learn what the tiny (but very loud) sac-winged bat has in common with people, especially with babies. Can you guess what it is? Prepare to enter the world of animal secrets!

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, September 2008

"These books offer fascinating accounts of how scientists systematically analyzed, tested, and proved their theories or how their findings led to other, serendipitous discoveries."

School Library Journal, February 2009

". . . this series will appeal to students who have a strong interest in science. Each chapter is well-researched and may stimulate the reader to further exploration . . .
