"An awesomely gross book about weird wildlife. Focusing on animals with odd or unexpected ways of fending off predators, When Lunch Fights Back offers exciting, photo-illustrated action scenes of creatures escaping attack, followed by fascinating facts about each animal's ability. For instance, the hagfish (nickname: snot eel) can create an instant cloud of slime, and fluffy hoopoe chicks can shoot super-stinky streams of poop." http://www.libraryaware.com/996/NewsletterIssues/ViewIssue/67314d73-b332-4408-8732-ec53459f86e3?postId=63bb335c-0042-4c5a-b583-94cdcc097bd0
