What I thought: Fun indeed! I loved it. This is definitely the first ferret book I've read.
I think it's needed though as ferrets are becoming more and more popular as pets. The illustration style almost like a comic book is great and suits the story perfectly. My favorite illustrations are Fudge and Einstein dancing and Marvel chasing the ferrets last page. I originally thought this would make a good addition to my pets story time, but I've changed my mind. I think Ferret Fun will be best used with older children elementary age.

Excerpt from the book after the owner introduces Marvel the cat to the ferrets, Fudge and Einstein : Fudge said to Einstein "I hope this friend brought raisins. You're not cats. I know cats. You're not dogs. I know dogs. Are you rats? I love tasty--I mean--I love rats.

Ferret friends Fudge and Einstein are rightfully nervous when their owner introduces Marvel, a hungry cat who is convinced they are rats. This is a picture book but the story is told in comic book panels with word balloons. It is very beautifully drawn and colored. I once watched a friend's ferret for the weekend and my cat reacted exactly like Marvel did!
Jul 06, Polly rated it it was ok Shelves: fiction , childrens-books , picture-books. Fluffy, in a bad way, which is too bad. Ferrets are great, and I'm always happy to meet nice ones in literature and definitely in real life! These ferrets are not very much like any ferrets I've ever met and I've known 13 fairly well and met several more. Which is not to say they aren't like any real ferrets, but it cuts down on my enjoyment. Feb 22, Arthur Pengerbil rated it really liked it.

Marvel thinks they are rats and is eager ot eat them. Trouble ensues Because of the format this presents a challenge as a readaloud option Apr 21, Terry added it Shelves: y , animal-character , all-elementary , zpb-challenge , picture-book , read-aloud , zbookaday. Can we get ferrets? This is a cute story that has more layers than it appears on the surface. Two ferrets have a new arrival to deal with - a cat who thinks that they might be more of a tasty meal than friends. Finally the ferrets discover a way to handle this new arrival. Quirky illustrations and a fun story was a winning combination for me.

This is a fun one for beginning readers. I like that it's a picture book in graphic novel format and the story is fun and simple to follow. I think it would be tricky to get right as a read-aloud in story time, but would be a good one-on-one option. Jun 09, Shelli rated it liked it Shelves: picture-books. Cute picture book done in comic book style of two ferrets that have an unwanted feline house guest.

I'm surprised there aren't more of them in children's books. View 2 comments. Like domestic ferrets, they perform the "weasel war dance," consisting of a series of hops, often accompanied by a clucking sound dooking , arched back, and frizzed tail. In the wild, the ferrets may perform the dance to disorient prey as well as to indicate enjoyment. Black-footed ferrets mate in February and March.
Gestation lasts 42 to 45 days, resulting in the birth of one to five kits in May and June. The kits are born in prairie dog burrows and don't emerge until they are six weeks old. Initially, the kits are blind and have sparse white fur. Their eyes open at 35 days of age and dark markings appear at three weeks of age. When they are a few months old, the kits move to new burrows. Ferrets are sexually mature at one year of age, but reach peak reproductive maturity at age 3 or 4. Unfortunately, wild black-footed ferrets typically only live one year, although they can reach 5 years of age in the wild and 8 years of age in captivity.
The black-footed ferret is an endangered species.
Ferret Fun (Animal Ark Pets, book 17) by Lucy Daniels
It was "extinct in the wild" in , but downgraded to "endangered" in thanks to a captive breeding and release program. Initially, the species was threatened by the fur trade, but it went extinct when prairie dog populations declined due to pest control measures and conversion of habitat to cropland. Sylvatic plague, canine distemper, and inbreeding finished off the last of the wild ferrets. The U. Fish and Wildlife Service artificially inseminated captive females, bred ferrets in zoos, and released them in the wild.
