Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Imagine you see a boa constrictor slithering through your neighborhood. Who would you contact to apprehend the trespassing reptile? The solution to your cold-blooded problem would be an animal control officer. It is these stalwart public servants who are the topic of this volume of the illustrated "The Work of Heroes: First Responders in Action" series. Written by a widely-published, skillful writer Meish Goldish, this book takes readers behind the scenes into the daily life and duties of law enforcement officers whose specialty is all living beings that are non-human. Through both instructive content and fascinating true-life anecdotes, this is a book that will capture the attention of its readers, while enhancing career awareness. This book is sure to appeal to animal lovers. Of particular interest are the actual rescue stories and the lengths to which officers go to retrieve and rescue the animals they are called about.
