4 Stars, borrow
Overall, a really decent edition to the series. I learned a lot about the echidna and had known next to nothing about them. The pictures are mostly decent too.
I Have a slight issue with this statement:”Echidna is slightly less intelligent than a cat.” Who is to say? How can you tell how intellegent a cat or an echidna is? This is too cute. A baby enchidna is called a puggle.
Did you know?
