Young readers will be enchanted by America's smallest bird, the fearless hummingbird. Its resting heart rate is an astonishing 480 beats per minute and, unlike any other bird, it can fly backwards.

The wolverine is a fierce predator that tends to hunt in only the most remote wilderness areas. A relative of the mink, this dog-sized animal is capable of hunting deer or caribou and can drive a cougar from its kill. It can bite through bones with its powerful jaws or sniff out a field mouse, even under deep snow.
The wolverine is a shy animal that tries to avoid contact with humans. Its population has decreased because of low birth rates and human settlements. Recognized as endangered, wolverines are considered a rare and vulnerable species.
