Timberdoodle's review

What’s Lurking in This House?
The first home our children knew was populated by a wide assortment of uninvited guests. From the squirrel that died in the walls resulting in a fine crop of maggots, to the bees that stored so much honey in the ceiling that it began to leak through when the house was warm, it was obvious we were living in a turn-of-the-century cabin. Beyond the unexpected bats and the skunk in the basement, the worst were the mice who insisted on gnawing the toothpaste tube and leaving droppings behind as evidence.

Hardly a Pest-free House
Thankfully, those years are behind us, and we have not had a single rodent cross our threshold in over a decade. But does that mean our home is pest-free? Hardly, and What’s Lurking in This House does an alarmingly accurate job of showing us what could be living in our home.

Meet the Critters That Share Your Home
Written to introduce both lap-warmers and beginning readers to the different pests and plants that secretly and not-so-secretly share our dwellings, What’s Lurking in This House mixes whimsical illustrations with clear photographs, even microscopic when necessary. “Fun facts” are scattered throughout the large-type narratives and each book concludes with a simple resource list for those who want to know more.

A Reason to Keep Clean
What’s Lurking in This House will convince your child that keeping clean can help assure their houses are pest-free and safe. The five titles include In These Walls and Floors, In This Bathroom, In This Bedroom, In This Kitchen, and In This Living Room, and the set retails for $39.95.
