"Here's a fun, up-to-date way to deliver a basic look at a science topic with a degree of "gross" to attract kids. The lively and amusing depictions of leeches at work will be easily remembered while the facts are learned . . . The book was originally published as Savais-Tu? Les Sangsues, and has been skilfully translated for an accessible read. Readers who enjoy this title can look forward to additional books in the series, either to read just for fun, or to learn about animals. Highly Recommended."
