Summary
"Each day zoo vets are hard at work dealing with emergencies, performing operations, and keeping some of the world's rarest animals healthy. From microchipping a baby Komodo dragon to taking an x-ray of a tiger's leg, zoo vets use technology and their science skills to take care of zoo animals - big and small!

Review
(The following is a combined review for Asteroid Hunters; Exploring Distant Worlds as a Space Robot Engineer; The Wild World of a Zoo Vet; The Wonderful Worlds of a Video Game Designer; and ) Gr 3 – 6 — Firsthand accounts from professionals in the field, dramatic situations that require problem-solving, and fascinating facts are at the heart of this engrossing series. These high-interest occupations will appeal to a wide audience, especially those students interested in pursuing a STEM-related career. Real-life scientists who use technology, analysis, and critical thinking to solve problems demonstrate on a larger scale the same techniques that students are learning in the classroom. Interesting details abound, and kids will be eager to learn more strange but true tidbits. (How do vets trim an elephant's toenails? With saws and power sanders, of course.) Striking photos are complemented by geometric sidebars, and the white-print-on-black-background is fresh and sharp. VERDICT Readers will flock to this fun and informational series. --Audrey Sumser (Reviewed November 1, 2015) (School Library Journal, vol 61, issue 11, p20)
