The animal information is up to date and mostly true (the indication that the Fred the ferret is a wild animal is one of the rare goofs), the story moves along quickly, and the characters and circumstances are believable (hey, I live with over 10 ferrets so I know what it's like, and Wallace hit the nail on the head).
Liz tells her zoologist father he must get rid of all the homeless animals he keeps at their house or she'll never win the sixth-grade class presidency, but when they're gone she misses them and learns there are more important things than winning.

Bill "Superfoot" Wallace is one of the all-time greats of American Karate. The book is well written with no typo's or grammar mistakes. Bill always manages to get his point across, either in competition or in writing. After damaging his right knee the former wrestler and Judo player decided to pick up the then almost unheard of art of Karate. Moreover, his "happy go lucky" personality and typical brand of humour shine through on the 156 pages of this book.
