Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-A compendium of trivia on crocodilians of all sorts, this book is organized into broad subject areas and presents information in a brief question-and-answer format. The basic physical facts are here and the pages are studded with full-color photographs, but the pictures do not always correspond to their captions, which make up a large portion of the text. The many photos begin to seem repetitive, while some interesting behaviors mentioned (mothers helping babies out of eggs, tail-walking, etc.) are not illustrated. Also, there's a preponderance of head shots, but not enough full-body shots to offer a true sense of scale. Reference is made to conservation organizations, but no names are included. And in Florida, crocodile farms are not places where animals are protected, but where they are bred for meat and skins. Even though it's for a younger audience, Jim Arnosky's All About Alligators (Scholastic, 1994) offers top gator coverage.-Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System
