This book is being counted towards the Planet Earth 2008 Challenge.

This is a non-fiction picture book about animals and plants that make their way into ecosystems they shouldn’t be in and how they can totally mess up the ecosystem they are in. The book has some good information but I found myself a little confused. If I was a little confused, I’m worried about the children that should be reading this. I think it’s a good book for those who know the basics. (i.e. that animals invade other ecosystems and cause havoc.)

The illustrations were very well done.
