Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
With a blue spotted poison dart frog on the cover and pictures of worm-like caecilians, wrinkly-skinned hellbenders and nearly transparent green glass frogs inside, this book is devoted mainly to the oddities of the amphibian world. While goggling at beautiful color photographs of unusual frogs, toads and salamanders, young readers learn a great deal about amphibians—how they are classified, where and how they live, and how they breed. It is a unique approach, one that the Watts Library has honed in a series of books about unusual animals, and it is bound to appeal to even the most reluctant students. Author Sara Swan Miller, an environmental educator whose accessible style reflects years of working with young people, explains these creatures' unique appearance, their odd breathing apparatus, their strange environmental requirements and truly amazing methods of reproduction. The book includes a list of all the amphibians mentioned with their scientific names and origins, a glossary of technical terms, and a bibliography with books and on-line sites to explore. 2001, Franklin Watts/Grolier, $24.00 and $8.95. Ages 7 to 10. Reviewer: Michele Tremaine
