A noteworthy review of Safari Animal Families from Booklist on April 1, 2024

This offering from the Safari Animal Families series (12 titles) begins with an explanation of why groups of wildebeests, or gnus, are called confusions. Presumably the term is based on wildebeests’ tendency to clump together in big bunches, occasionally even trampling one another. View →
