Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Gloria Grover
Both these titles cover everything a first-time bird or aquarium fish owner needs to know about caring for their pets. The information ranges from how to select a healthy bird or fish, to the type of equipment one will need to provide a comfortable home for the new pet, to the type of diet that will maintain its health. Alderton and Mills both cover which birds/fish are best kept with the same species, or do well in a mixed setting. They also provide several chapters of selected lists of birds/fish covering physical characteristics, temperament, life span, size, and/or incubation and fledgling period. Accurate, clear, and concise writing is enhanced with wonderful color photographs on each page, illustrating the points the author makes. Both titles are great additions to any public library. Their easy-to-read format, attractive layout, and colorful covers will attract teens with a special interest. Index and Photos.
