Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
The Animal Planet television shows are popular with those in many age groups and middle graders seem to especially appreciate them. "The Most Extreme" shows follow a countdown format and that approach is also used in "The Most Extreme" series of books. The countdowns are done with attention to detail and many interesting sidebars, some of which include humorous asides. The photographs accompanying the text are awesome. There are twelve chapters counting down extreme predators from ten to one and each chapter is intriguing. In this book about predators, the author points out that while these creatures do not kill for sport, they kill for survival, so that although their actions may seem cruel and even vicious, they live in a kill-or-be-killed environment. Kids will be familiar with some of the predators, such as the lion and the tick. Others, such as the matamata turtle and the termite assassin bug, will be new to them. They will be interested to read the paragraphs about the Tasmanian devil and the Gila monster. An extensive glossary is included, as is a listing of books and websites for further study.
