Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-8These eye-catching oversized titles feature attractively designed double-page spreads and one four-page foldout. Dangerous Animals offers an exciting look at nature with close-ups of spiders, snakes, crocodiles, etc., organized by the animals' methods of defense or predation (venom, teeth, claws, size, etc.). Dinosaurs includes an overview of periods and categories of dinosaurs, their behavior, how fossils are reconstructed, and theories about the creatures' demise. This book is similar in content to David Norman and Angela Miller's Dinosaur (Knopf, 1989) and equally dramatic in appearance with sensational close-up drawings. The subject matter of Undersea World is not as gripping as in the other two titles, but it does contain sections on mysteries and legends of the sea and is as colorful and appealing. It looks at life forms in different water environments, undersea exploration, humankind's use of resources from the sea, pollution, and conservation. All three titles are super for browsing, but they do not offer enough information for reports.Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukee, OR
