Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula Rohrlick
This entry in the strikingly designed "Predator vs. Prey" series looks at what happens when a Nile crocodile battles a Blue wildebeest. The competitors are depicted in large, close-up full-color photographs, and the text provides details like their sizes, weights, and strengths, what they eat, and how they attack and defend themselves. A map indicates where in Africa these animals live. Bright yellow "Did You Know?" insets highlight fascinating facts, like how many people are eaten by Nile crocodiles every year and exactly how crocs bite. The creatures' deadly encounter is related in the present tense in a play-by-play fashion, which helps to heighten the excitement, accompanied by action photos. A glossary of terms and a brief bibliography of books and websites are appended, along with an index. Others in this sure-to-appeal series, which would be a great choice for reluctant readers, include:: Tarantula vs. Bird; Crocodile vs. Wildebeest; Dolphin vs. Fish; Lion vs. Gazelle; Owl vs. Mouse; Shark vs. Penguin; and Wolf vs. Elk.
