Near Fine with no dust jacket; New book, but cover edges curl slightly away from text block from being on display. Penguin Puffin Later Printing Paperback 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 95 pages; For ages eight and up. What child can resist the urge to catch a small creature and want to make a pet of it? Perhaps you've been asked for a jar to house one of these small creatures. Simon explains where to find the creatures he suggests as "pets" and how to house and care for them. He suggests various experiments to find out more about them (but none that would hurt the animals.) The creatures he covers in this book are hydras, planarians, pond snails, water bugs, tadpoles, newts, toads, earthworms, ants, crickets, praying mantes, butterflies and moths, brine shrimp, hermit crabs, and starfish. Simon suggests that children should not capture any more creatures than they are committed to caring for at one time and that after a time of keeping and studying a creature, it should be turned loose again in its natural environment.; ISBN: 0140491864
